Wheels Up—Bringing Lung Cancer Education & Screening to Rural Patients

The Levine Cancer Institute mobile lung CT unit hits the road providing access to lung cancer education and treatment, integrating technology, nurse navigation, and brick-and-mortar medical facilities and staff for patients in the rural Carolinas. This innovative model to reach at-risk populations in their home communities is slated to improve health equity and access to care, leading to earlier intervention and treatment for lung cancer patients, with the goal of reducing the number of stage III and IV diagnoses.
