Improve Your Lung Health
More people die from
lung cancer than any other type of cancer. At the
Torrance Memorial Hunt Cancer Institute we strive to reduce that number every year. We have designed the Healthy
Lung Program to offer patients access to screenings, education and support
for individuals who are or were heavy smokers.
Expert Care and Support
Patients who enter into the Healthy Lung Program receive a personalized
action plan from a Nurse Navigator. The Nurse Navigator is with you every
step of the way, providing guidance, education and coaching with the goal
of helping you improve your lung health and quality of life.
