2019 to present
"The overarching aim of the Communications Committee is to increase the visibility of the IASLC — its goals, vision, activities, and publications — through engagement with IASLC members across all disciplines and the wider public around the globe. During my time as Chair, the committee aims to develop guidelines around topics such as social media, as well as an assessment of the impact of telemedicine and the COVID-19 pandemic on cancer care."
