Why we need to stop ignoring the equivalent of 747s crashing daily and expand lung cancer screening

October 26, 2022

This episode shines a light on lung cancer, a deadly killer that isn’t getting the attention it deserves. Dr. William Mayfield, WellStar Health System medical director and former chief surgical officer, says lung cancer kills thousands of people every day – more than most other cancers combined – but isn’t screened for as aggressively. Drawing motivation from a personal loss to lung cancer, Emily Elswick, vice president in the Office of the CEO and former vice president and general manager of Lung Health and Visualization, says we currently have the tools necessary to expand screening, but we need to find the will.
