*NEW* The State of Patient Navigation in Cancer 

The National Navigation Roundtable has published a new supplement on the role patient navigation plays in improving patient outcomes. The special supplement is titled A Decade Later: The State of Patient Navigation in Cancer, and was published in the Cancer journal in July 2022.  The supplement is a collection of 13 patient navigation articles that will improve cancer care disparities across the cancer continuum by highlighting the critical role of evidence-based navigation. The supplement is also posted on the @NNRTnews Twitter page and on the NNRT website.

*NEW* National Lung Cancer Screening Day

The American Cancer Society National Lung Cancer Roundtable (ACS NLCRT), American College of Radiology (ACR), and Radiology Health Equity Coalition (RHEC) have partnered once again for the second annual National Lung Cancer Screening Day (“National LCS Day”) on Saturday, November 11, 2023. As part of Lung Cancer Awareness Month and in partnership with the ACR and the RHEC, we are promoting this lifesaving event to screen more individuals and raise awareness about lung cancer screening. The President’s Cancer Panel recommends lung cancer screening as the single most effective strategy for reducing mortality from the disease and closing the gap to improve health equity and access. To achieve this goal, the President’s Cancer Panel has charged individuals, health systems, and communities with communicating and promoting lung cancer screening.

For more information on lung cancer screening accessibility, marketing, instructional materials, and promotional videos or to contact the team, please visit https://nlcrt.org/lung-cancer-screening-day/.

*NEW* Increasing Food Security Toolkit
