The 6th Latin American Conference on Lung Cancer (LALCA 2014)

The 6th Latin American Conference on Lung Cancer (LALCA 2014) will be held August 21 23, 2014 in Lima, Peru.

Lung Cancer is still the leading cause of death not only in Latin America but worldwide. Building on the success of the previous conferences in Chile, Mexico, Argentina and Brazil, international and national speakers will discuss the science and advances in the treatment and prevention of lung cancer and thoracic malignancies worldwide and Latin America in particular.

With tobacco being the leading cause of morbi-mortality worldwide and its consumption leading to respiratory and cardiovascular disease, as well as cancer, the Conference would like to support the Framework Convention for Tobacco Control and will again host a Tobacco Forum on Thursday, August 21.

We encourage physicians, nurses, other clinicians, researchers and scientists in the lung cancer field and those interested in any aspect of thoracic oncology to attend this conference. It is only through an exchange of the widest variety of research that we can offer the best program and benefits to our members and patients.

We expect more than 500 delegates from Latin America to attend this unique event and we encourage everyone to submit an abstract before the abstract submission deadline June 13, 2014

Simultaneous translation English >< Spanish will be provided for all sessions.
