The IASLC Latin America Conference on Lung Cancer 2019 (LALCA 2019) provides a unique opportunity for participants to attend lectures by international and national speakers on key advances in the science of treating, detecting and preventing lung cancer and other thoracic malignancies.

In addition to its main scientific program, LALCA 2019 will host several special workshops and forums. For example, due to tobacco being a dominant cause of lung cancer mortality, LALCA will host the Cancer Control Program and Tobacco Forum, scheduled for Thursday, October 17. Additionally, the IASLC School of Oncology will once again offer an intense workshop for young researchers, clinicians and trainee physicians from different disciplines - including medical oncology, thoracic surgery, radiation oncology, pulmonary, radiology and pathology. And finally, the successful Round Table  discussions will continue in 2019, providing delegates the unique opportunity to discuss specific topics directly with international leaders and local experts.
