Conference | <b>Lung Cancer Heroes</b>

In this episode of the “CURE Talks Cancer” podcast, we looked back on CURE’s Lung Cancer Heroes event and recognized each winner that helps bring together the lung cancer community to raise awareness.

On October 15th, CURE® recognized five individuals for their contributions to the lung cancer space and raising awareness to end the stigma, inform, connect, and empower anyone who has been impacted by lung cancer.

During the inaugural virtual event, four individuals — two physicians, a nurse and a patient turned advocate — were awarded for their contributions to the lung cancer community. The program also recognized one Lifetime Achievement award winner.

In this episode of the “CURE Talks Cancer” podcast, we spoke with Bonnie J. Addario, Carolyn Baggett, Dr. Jennifer Garst, Dr. Fred Hirsh and Deborah Pickworth about their contributions and why bringing the lung cancer community is vital in raising awareness around the disease.
