NEW ORLEANS — On Feb. 4, the Louisiana Cancer Research Center and the Louisiana Campaign for Tobacco-Free Living are presenting a webinar to share information about cancer in Louisiana, updates on the treatment of smoking-related cancers, programs to help smokers quit, and access to cancer clinical trials.

Cancer is the second-leading cause of death in Louisiana with more than 26,000 diagnoses every year. Lung cancer claims the lives of more men in the state than any other form of cancer. It is well established that smoking significantly raises one’s risk of developing cancer.

The program will be moderated by Earl Benjamin-Robinson, DrHSc, CPH, the director of TFL. Other presenters are listed below:
