51st Annual Southeastern Wisconsin Cancer Conference: Targeting Advanced Lung Cancer

Milwaukee, WI US
March 16, 2019

The treatment of advanced stage lung cancer continues to evolve with a greater emphasis and targeted and immune therapies.  Our goal is to educate providers on how these treatments work, when they are appropriate, what are the side effects and how are the side effects managed.  Lastly we will include a lecture of the management and treatment of oligometastatic disease. 


Our intent is to provide the audience members with an overview of the current practice in the smoking cessation and tobacco control. Lung cancer staging, use of molecular markers, treatment of advanced lung cancer, and the identification and management of treatment side effects.  


This meeting is being supported by an unrestricted educational grant:  Takeda Pharmaceuticals
