ILC2: Transforming Patient Care Worldwide

The Initiatives in Lung Cancer Care (ILC2) program, a flagship project of the Lung Ambition Alliance, has announced its first set of awards for projects to transform lung cancer patient care and improve the patient experience.

Sixty applications were received, and selected projects were awarded a total of more than $1M. Awarded projects spanned the globe, representing six continents, and targeted aspects of local areas and country-specific health systems. They outlined a variety of approaches – including digital and mobile tools, support groups and hotlines, and screening and diagnosis – to address different points along the patient journey.
