The Addario Lung Cancer Foundation and the Addario Lung Cancer Medical Institute have formed a partnership with the University of Torino and Women Against Lung Cancer in Europe to address the global epidemic of lung cancer.

“While patient advocates around the world have played an important role in raising lung cancer awareness, misinformation continues to surround this disease, creating barriers to treatment and patient care,” said Stefania Vallone. “We are calling on the general public to help correct misperceptions around lung cancer and highlight the disease for what it truly is– a complicated illness with many causes that can affect anyone, regardless of age, gender or smoking history.”

The basis of the partnership includes public relations, marketing and promotional projects, joint patient educational programs, shared patient services projects and clinical trial/study initiatives.
