LuCa National Training Network (“LuCa”) offers free education to primary care providers (PCPs) with the goal of reducing the many burdens associated with lung cancer. Specifically, LuCa education covers topics, such as lung cancer risk reduction, early detection, treatment, and survivorship care. LuCa was awarded gold, silver and bronze designations in the Spring 2020 Digital Health Awards, recognizing LuCa's dedication to bringing quality lung cancer care education to PCPs and other healthcare professionals.

LuCa helps providers address the needs of patients who are at risk for or diagnosed with lung cancer, including family and internal medicine physicians, pulmonologists, OB/GYNs, and any other providers who can refer for lung cancer screening or treatment.
