The importance of studying young emergent lung cancer was emphasized recently during a luncheon for the USC Norris Ambassadors on March 24.

Gruber, MD, PhD, MPH, director of the USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center, and Art Ulene, MD, a longtime broadcast media medical expert.

USC Norris Ambassadors promote and share the cancer center’s mission.
