MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – The WVU Cancer Institute Lung Cancer Screening Program will provide screenings for current and former smokers from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on March 15 at the WVU Medicine outpatient center located at University Town Centre.
Eligible high-risk patients will receive a low-dose CT (LDCT) scan to detect lung cancer at its earliest stages.
Pre-registered patients may arrive at the clinic for their appointment any time throughout the screening event. The appointment will include a comprehensive history, physical exam, same-day scheduling of the LDCT, and smoking cessation counseling.
Pre-registration is required. To register for the event, call Brianne Leichliter at 304-598-6516.

David McDonald, 55, of Morgantown, didn’t expect a cancer diagnosis when he brought up some symptoms he had been having during a doctor’s appointment for stomach pain. He mentioned to his doctor that he had been having some rectal bleeding, and his family doctor sent him for further tests to find the cause.
Paul Rosen, M.D., M.P.H., M.M.M., has joined WVU Medicine Children’s as the state’s first dedicated pediatric rheumatologist.
