FREE Brisbane Asbestos Symposium
Queensland Asbestos Related Disease Support Society (QARDS) Inc. will host a FREE “Asbestos Disease & Treatment – The Future Is Now" Symposium on Friday 30 September 2011 at the Holiday Inn Brisbane 159 Roma Street Brisbane.
Dr Gandara advocates that every patient with lung cancer is different and suggests that personalised medicine, that is, taking cancer treatment and making it individualised for each patient is best practice for lung cancer patients. Dr Gandara also talks encouragingly about the latest research into lung cancer screening including CT scans and blood tests.
