To help raise awareness for lung cancer and promote healthy lung care, Lourdes is hosting a free Lunch and Learn on Tuesday, August 22 at noon in the Borders Community Room in the Marshall Nemer Pavilion. Lourdes cardiac and thoracic surgeon, Dr. James O’Rourke, is the guest speaker.  

Studies show that about 14% of all new cancers are lung cancers. Lung cancer is by far the leading cause of cancer death among both men and women. Each year, more people die of lung cancer than of colon, breast, and prostate cancers combined.

Other topics that will be covered during the Lunch and Learn include the importance of a lung screening, such as a low dose CT, and the impact of smoking on lung cancer. Those who should consider attending include current smokers, smokers thinking about quitting, and loved ones of smokers who would like information and tools to help get their loved one to quit.

The lunch is free and open to the public. To RSVP, call 270-538-5867.
