JOIN THE FORCE FOR LUNG HEALTH
Lung Force Walk | August 12, 2018
10:00 am | Soldier Field | 1410 Museum Campus Dr., Chicago, IL 60605

Help us defeat lung cancer and lung disease on step at a time. 

Join Northwestern Medicine as we walk together to raise awareness and funds to defeat lung cancer and raise our voices for lung health. LUNG FORCE Walks are a time to laugh, learn and imagine a world free of lung disease, and help forge lasting connections between participants. Your support saves lives by funding key lung cancer research and providing people who are impacted by lung cancer with invaluable resources, assistance and information. 

Why Do We Walk? 

  • Lung cancer is the #1 cancer killer of women.
  • Anyone can get it – if you have lungs, you can get lung cancer, and it's on the rise in women.
  • Because every 5 minutes, a woman in the United States is told that she has lung cancer.
  • More than 33 million Americans suffer from asthma, COPD (which includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis), and other lung diseases.

By joining us to walk and raise funds, you can help make a difference for all those affected by lung disease. Now is the time to raise our voices against lung cancer—and for lung health. Together, we are a FORCE to be reckoned with!

It’s also an approach that the physicians and scientists at OncoSET, the flagship clinical and research program of the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University, take to heart every day.

Scientists Develop Novel Platform to Investigate Therapeutic Nanomaterials

Northwestern Medicine scientists have developed a novel testing platform to assess, in real time, the efficacy of nanomaterials in regulating gene expression. The findings, published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, could help to facilitate preclinical investigations and optimize nanotherapeutics for cancers before they reach clinical trials.
