SALT LAKE CITY, May 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- ProLung, Inc., a leader in innovative predictive analytics technology and non-invasive biomarkers for the risk stratification of lung cancer, announced today it has been selected to present at the upcoming Cavendish Global Health Impact Forum taking place May 7-9, 2017 in Washington, DC, co-hosted with the Virginia Biotechnology Association (VirginiaBio).
As part of ProLung's awareness campaign to further increase corporate visibility among the scientific, financial, and philanthropic communities, ProLung recently became a member of Cavendish Global. ProLung will utilize the Cavendish Global platform to educate and further broaden awareness for ProLung's mission to help save the lives of historically underserved lung cancer patients. The Company is fulfilling its mission through its non-invasive predictive analytics platform, the ProLung Test which aids in the risk stratification of indeterminate pulmonary nodules.
"We are honored to be selected to present at Cavendish's unique event, and it is further recognition of our innovative approach to addressing the need for early detection of lung cancer with our breakthrough predictive analytics' device. Given that lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide, killing more individuals than colorectal, breast, pancreatic, and prostate cancers combined, the need for early detection has significant impact," stated Steven Eror, President and CEO of ProLung. "ProLung recently became a member of Cavendish Global and is looking forward to its participation in the organization. Its members include many of the world's most accomplished scientists, thought-leaders and generous philanthropic individuals and families who are all dedicated to the common cause of improving the health and lives of people globally."
