The Kentucky Cancer Consortium Lung Cancer Prevention and Early Detection Network provides a forum for coordination and collaboration to impact lung cancer in Kentucky. This Network is focusing on reducing environmental risk (radon and secondhand smoke), reducing smoking and increasing the percentage of Kentuckians at high risk for lung cancer who are detected at an early stage. The first initiative of this network was to develop clear, unified messages on these areas of lung cancer prevention and early detection to educate the public, community leaders, healthcare professionals, healthcare system leaders and policymakers regarding lung cancer prevention and early detection. We are currently focused on supporting implementation of new tobacco treatment legislation as well as working together on other tobacco policy, system and environmental changes.
