170,000 people in the US diagnosed with lung cancer each year," said Selma R.

Schimmel, Founder and CEO of Vital Options International.

"The CHEST Foundation is pleased to sponsor this special lung cancer

broadcast of The Group Room. An integrated discussion about this serious

disease will help to bring the latest research findings in lung cancer

directly to patients throughout the world and allow patients and others to

hear first hand from prominent lung cancer experts," said Dr. Marciniuk.

CHEST 2005 is the 71st annual international scientific assembly of the
