On Thursday, November 17 at 7 pm, Saint Clare’s Health online series, “Let’s Talk Health” hosted by Brian Finestein, Chief Executive Officer of Saint Clare’s Health, will discuss Treatments for Healthier Lungs with Dr. Bassel Noumi, Interventional Pulmonologist at Saint Clare’s Health.

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in the world. This translates to 1 in 16 people you know will be diagnosed with lung cancer in their lifetime. Lung cancer kills almost three times as many women as breast cancer and three times

as many men as prostate cancer.

According to Dr. Bassel Noumi, the two major risk factors for lung cancer are smoking and radon gas exposure. “Take the first step to protect your lungs by stopping smoking, checking the radon level in your house, and if you are a smoker or smoked in the past, talk to your physician about lung cancer screening,” he stated.

Saint Clare’s Health takes pride in being a place that is both around the corner for patients seeking exceptional care close to home, and ahead of the curve offering state-of-the-art technology. Dr. Noumi noted the services available at Saint Clare’s for pulmonary medicine delivers on both.
