The following are covered in this segment:
Why did Griffin start this program?

CT Low Dose Lung Cancer Screening Program is a comprehensive, multidisciplinary effort was intended to bend the curve in lung cancer early diagnosis, and subsequently, survival rates.
The screening can help detect lung cancer early.
Because of this screening program Ostuno is now 4 years strong being lung cancer free. The screening can help detect lung cancer early, which then increase survival rates among smokers by as much as 20%.
