“Don’t Guess. Test.” is an initiative aimed to expand awareness and educate patients about precision medicine and the importance of comprehensive genomic testing in lung cancer. It is our hope that through this initiative, every patient with lung cancer and their families, friends and caretakers will be motivated to take action by opening a dialogue with their doctors about comprehensive genomic testing to ensure all possible treatment options are explored.
