CHEST Foundation recognizes physicians who make a world of difference in lung health

26, The CHEST Foundation will sponsor The Group Room, a syndicated radio program recognized as the world's largest support group for cancer survivors. The program will broadcast two live panel discussions covering the latest detection and treatment advances in lung cancer and will include an update on the ACCP Lung Cancer Guidelines released in January 2003.

On Monday, October 27, The CHEST Foundation and the ACCP Industry Advisory Council will sponsor their Community Outreach Event held at an Orlando-area elementary school. This year, the American Lung Association (ALA) of Florida-Central Area and The CHEST Foundation will combine the ALA's Open Airways curriculum with The CHEST Foundation's Lung LessonsTM curriculum for a special educational activity that will stress the importance of maintaining good lung health and avoiding tobacco use.

During CHEST 2003, The CHEST Foundation also will introduce its anticipated Stories at the End of Life. Spearheaded by The Foundation's Ambassadors Group, the Stories project combines real-life perspectives on coping with a loss and addressing one's mortality into a series of six booklets, each with a unique focus on end-of-life care issues.

"Throughout the year, The CHEST Foundation gives life to numerous national and local initiatives that educate communities on the importance of lung health," said Diane Stover, MD, FCCP, President of The CHEST Foundation. "The annual meeting gives us the opportunity to acknowledge the organizations that implement Foundation programs and help support research projects. We also recognize the medical professionals who institute their own community programs and those who spearhead research initiatives."
