IASLC Foundation Cancer Care Team Award

IASLC Foundation Cancer Care Team Award

The IASLC Foundation Cancer Care Team Award is a new award that recognizes outstanding patient care and aims to honor multidisciplinary teams working together to provide the highest quality cancer care. The award was conceived by Marilyn Holman, a lung cancer survivor, and her husband, Dr. Matt Holman.

Nominations for the IASLC Foundation Cancer Care Team Award were received from all over the world. The winning teams for 2017 selected one representative to receive travel support to attend the IASLC 18th World Conference on Lung Cancer in Yokohama, Japan, October 15-18, 2017. The awards were presented at the WCLC Faculty Dinner on October 16, 2017. Congratulations to all the winners!
