Our specific goals for the summit are twofold:

— Increase reflex biomarker testing in Minnesota’s newly diagnosed lung cancer patients, regardless of zip code, to ensure each patient receives the best treatment at the right time.

— Create an event and space where medical professionals can be open and honest about their current practices, including naming barriers to precision medicine/testing, and to encourage collaboration toward a Minnesota healthcare community that understands the importance of precision medicine, feels comfortable testing and identifying the best therapy, and makes a commitment to help their healthcare system develop a systemwide practice of reflex biomarker testing.

 

Minnesota Biomarker Summit

This event is only for healthcare providers. If you are a lung cancer patient or caregiver, you are invited to attend or Midwest Lung Cancer Patient Summit (also in Edina, MN) on September 28. You can find more information regarding that event here. 

A Breath of Hope Lung Foundation was incorporated in 2008 by a group of lung cancer patients, both smokers and nonsmokers. Learning quickly that this cancer is treated differently than other cancers, they set about building a community to join them in their efforts to improve a survival rate of less than 14% at the time.

Today, A Breath of Hope hosts one the most visited patient education programs in the world (Animated Patient’s Guide to Lung Cancer found at youandlungcancer.com), funds translational U.S. research, provides patient support services, and works to address areas of concern, such as screening and biomarker testing.

Every step we take is A Breath of Hope for the thousands of Minnesota families that lose their loved on to lung cancer each year. We hope you can join us!
