Chicago, following the lead of other cities across the nation, recently passed an ordinance that bans smoking in virtually all public areas.

Efforts to stub out smoking are on the rise as more Americans die each year from lung cancer than from breast, prostate, and colorectal cancers combined, according to the American Cancer Society.

Chicago area residents have the opportunity to learn about lung cancer, the newest advancements in screening and the latest in research and treatment at a free seminar hosted by Rush University Medical Center.

"Lung Cancer: What Progress are We Making?" will be held from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, February 25, at Rush University Medical Center, 600 S. Paulina Street, Armour Academic Center, Room 994.

Dr. Philip Bonomi, an oncologist specializing in lung cancer, will discuss improvements observed in long term lung cancer survival rates and changes in the way physicians are approaching treatment for lung cancer patients. Dr. James Mulshine, a lung cancer researcher, will discuss how fellow researchers are working to show the importance of screenings to find lung cancer in its earliest stages so that patients have a better chance of surviving.

Space is limited. To register for this free program, call (888) 352-RUSH. Free (validated) parking is available at the visitor/patient parking garage adjacent to Rush University Medical Center on Harrison Street just west of Ashland Avenue.
