(Supportive Training on Research and Science)
What is IASLC STARS?
Our Mission: Help lung cancer patient advocates evolve into research advocates.
The IASLC STARS (Supportive Training for Advocates on Research and Science) Program began in 2019 as a collaboration between lung cancer patient research advocates and representatives from lung cancer advocacy organizations. STARS aims to train, develop, and nurture lung cancer patient research advocates (PRAs) for the lung cancer community.
In STARS, the "patient" includes people in active lung cancer treatment, people cured of lung cancer, people living with lung cancer, and their loved ones.
