The Premier Oncology Foundation

Lung Cancer Initiative

Lung Cancer

Grant Amount: $266,500

Premiere Oncology Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to cancer research, integrative medicine, patient/family support services and community education, will utilize the grant to support a comprehensive lung cancer program to include multi-disciplinary research.

Lung cancer is the world’s top cancer killer, claiming more than 1.3 million lives per year, yet few financial resources have been dedicated to this disease. The Premiere Oncology Foundation Lung Cancer Initiative focuses on the use of FDA-sanctioned novel treatment regimens in collaboration with experts in the field of lung cancer detection and treatment. The program will foster dialog among practitioners caring for lung cancer patients, and provide a means for seamless interaction with medical and radiation oncologists, thoracic surgeons, radiologists, pulmonologists and primary care physicians caring for these patients.

Dedicated to whole-patient care and recognized for expediting clinical trials, Premiere’s flagship cancer center in Santa Monica offers patients the newest cutting-edge treatments, rapid access to novel, internationally available therapies and integrative medicine all under one roof. Additionally, Premiere provides services in its Scottsdale, Arizona center and research affiliation with Pacific Hematology & Oncology Associates in San Diego.
