Broward Health Physician to Speak at Lung FORCE Expo

Fort Lauderdale, Florida -- Today, the American Lung Association in Florida announced that two local physicians will speak at the virtual LUNG FORCE Expo on December 8. Joshua Lenchus, D.O., Chief Medical Officer of Broward Health Medical Center, and Franck Rahaghi, M.D., Chairman of the Department of Pulmonary Medicine for Cleveland Clinic Florida, are featured speakers at the event.

This LUNG FORCE Expo is designed to educate health professionals about the latest trends, resources and research surrounding lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), COVID-19 and other respiratory diseases. Dr. Lenchus is the keynote speaker and will present on "COVID-19 Recovery and Lingering Effects," and Dr. Rahaghi will present during a breakout session on "Breathing Easier: The Latest COPD and IPF Treatments."

"It is more important than ever before to focus on and support lung health. More than 37 million Americans live with chronic lung disease and COVID-19 is affecting millions, so it is critical that healthcare providers are educated on the newest trends, research and treatments that have the potential to benefit their patients," said Chrissy Cohen, executive director of the Lung Association. "We are honored to have Dr. Lenchus and Dr. Rahaghi featured at this important event to help healthcare professionals better treat their patients living with lung disease, including lung cancer and COVID-19."

The event will also feature topics like health disparities in lung disease, treating lung cancer patients in a pandemic, and much more. View the full agenda here.
