The GO2 Summit provides so much inspiration. It gets you invigorated and excited to return to work and bring back all that you’ve learned to those in your community. And I think they hit it out of the park to really inspire us to bring back all the things that we need to continue to work on back at home.

“I think that having the support of GO2 has encouraged me. You know, they’ve really been behind me – if I run into a roadblock, I have found the support that I’ve needed with GO2. They will either give me the answer or find me a way to find the answer.”

“I just want to thank GO2 for Lung Cancer for holding this summit because I think it’s really giving me and everyone else hope that people across the country are energized, they’re activated, and they’re going to work together to decrease deaths from lung cancer.”

“This is my first GO2 COE Summit, and as an oncology nurse I’ve gained greater insights into what’s ahead in lung cancer and how this will help our patients. . . . Now, I am able to help patients with their barriers to care from the day of diagnosis, through treatment and survivorship.”
