With World Lung Cancer Day this month, we’re focusing on the promising future ahead, as we continue to enhance treatment for Veterans with the disease. So, in the spirit of this commitment, we invite you to take a closer look at some of our innovations in the field, along with opportunities to join our growing team.

Among our many advancements is the precision oncology program, which incorporates targeted genomic sequencing to identify specific mutations that are causing lung cancer cells to exist and grow. This enables our physicians to prescribe medications targeted to their patients’ mutations, helping increase the likelihood for desired outcomes. What’s more, VA researchers can use the genomic sequencing information to test new drugs with the potential to shape the future of oncology.

Through such initiatives, our employees are improving quality of life for Veterans and their families throughout America. It’s a great way to give back to those who’ve given so much for our country.

If you’re ready to build on our success and yours, explore our available positions and apply for one today.
