by Emily Bamforth
CLEVELAND, Ohio — A new regional collaborative led by Case Western Reserve University researchers is increasing access to lung health screenings and information in Northeast Ohio’s underserved communities.
Funded by a $2.75 million, three-year grant from the Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation, a group of 11 organizations will help Northeast Ohioans decide whether they need to be screened for lung cancer. The group will use new technologies, like artificial intelligence, to diagnose the disease more easily.
