On Sunday, December 5, 2021, our host Dr. Marianne Ritchie will be joined by Jamie L. Garfield, MD, a highly respected pulmonologist from the renowned Temple Lung Center, for a discussion about lung cancer; the #1 cause of cancer death in both men and women. In fact, lung cancer causes more deaths than breast, prostate, colorectal, and brain cancers combined.

Tune in to learn about prevention, the latest developments in screening, and the great work of the American Lung Association.

Dr. Garfield is an Associate Professor of Thoracic Medicine and Surgery and Core Clinical Educator for Medical Students at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine, and Core Clinical Faculty for the Internal Medicine Residency at Temple University Hospital.
