Patients, researchers, and advocates build community through ribbons

Key stakeholders in the lung cancer community will be gathering for a White Ribbon build on July 9, 2022 at 9572 E. Lake Circle, Greenwood Village from 10:00am-3:00pm to raise awareness about research treatment breakthroughs, early detection, and tangible hope for those impacted by the number one cancer killer. 

Event participants include Dr. Debra Dyer, Chair, Department of Radiology, National Jewish Health and Dr. Michael Gieske, Director of the Lung Cancer Screening Program, St. Elizabeth Healthcare Kentucky.
