Assess your lung cancer risk

One in 16 people will develop lung cancer in their lifetime. Lung cancer is the leading cause of death from cancer – higher than breast, colon or prostate cancer. The good news is that lung cancer can now be found earlier and treated with less invasive methods. By finding and treating lung cancer earlier, patients are surviving lung cancer and living longer and healthier lives.

Learn more about lung cancer, your risk and new treatment methods at a free seminar on July 31 called, “Are You at Risk for Lung Cancer? Surprising Facts About How Diagnosis and Treatment of Lung Cancer Has Changed.”

The presenter is CMH’s new lung and heart surgery specialist Dr. Jennifer Wan, one of only 300 board certified women cardiothoracic surgeons in the nation. In addition to cardiac surgery, Dr. Wan specializes in minimally invasive approaches to lung cancer, esophageal cancer and benign foregut disease. She performs thoracoscopic surgery for lung cancer and mediastinal masses, as well as laparoscopic and thoracoscopic procedures. She also founded and co-chaired a thoracic tumor board and high-risk lung nodule committee, and helped implement a lung cancer screening program.

The free seminar begins at 6 p.m. on July 31 at the Museum of Ventura County, 100 E. Main St. For reservations, visit or call Brown Paper Tickets at 800-838-3006.
