2016 Latin American Lung Cancer Conference (LALCA)

The 7th Latin American Conference on Lung Cancer will be held August 25 – 27, 2016 in Panama City, Panama.

Lung Cancer is still the leading cause of death not only in Latin America but worldwide. Building on the success of the previous conferences in Peru, Chile, Argentina and Brazil, international and national speakers will discuss the science and advances in the treatment and prevention of lung cancer and thoracic malignancies worldwide and Latin America in particular.

We encourage physicians, nurses, clinicians, researchers and scientists in the lung cancer field and those interested in any aspect of thoracic oncology to attend this conference. It is only through an exchange of the widest variety of research that we can offer the best program and benefits to our members and patients.

We expect more than 700 delegates from Latin America to attend this unique event and we encourage everyone to attend and to submit an abstract.
