American Lung Association examines toll of lung cancer in New Jersey, underscores urgent need for more high-risk people to be screened to increase survivorship TRENTON…
New Jersey is listed as among the middle of the pack for states with the policies to prevent and reduce tobacco use, according to the American Lung Association’s 21st annual “State of Tobacco Control” report, released today. The state earned mostly mixed grades on this year’s report but did improve from an ‘F’ to a ‘D’ for access to cessation services. SBN News Director Steve Lubetkin discusses the report with Dr. Andrew Berman of Rutgers New Jersey Medical School.
In an exclusive audio interview, American Lung Association National AVP Michael Seilback discusses the association’s latest “State of Lung Cancer” report, which shows that New Jersey residents of color face worse lung cancer outcomes than white residents, even though the state is in the top five nationally for lung cancer diagnosis and treatment.
