6th National Lung Cancer Survivor Summit

The National Lung Cancer Survivor Summit will take place from September 7th through the 10th in Washington, DC this fall!

Due to significant interest, we are giving priority registration to first time attendees. We will also be selecting applicants based on Congressional districts.   

Registration for the Summit is $100. If your application is accepted, your card on file will be charged for that amount. This reserves your participation in the Summit and is non-refundable.  You are responsible for your travel to and from Washington, DC. We have limited travel scholarships, up to $300, available for those who need assistance getting to the Summit. You can apply for your travel scholarship when you register. You will be notified if a scholarship will be granted within seven business days of your application.

This is your chance to connect with other members of the lung cancer community from across the country. Throughout the three-day event, you will gain the confidence and know-how to share your powerful story and engage policy leaders, public health officials and the media in order to bring heightened understanding and support to lung cancer.

The official hotel for the conference is the Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel.  LCA will cover your hotel stay for three nights (September 7, 8 and 9th). If you are able to pay for your hotel room, please let us know during your registration process so that we may help other attendees in need of travel scholarships.

Register today!
