During Lung Cancer Awareness Month (November), the American Lung Association in South Dakota’s LUNG FORCE initiative is highlighting the availability of a lifesaving tool – lung cancer screening. One reason lung cancer is so deadly is because by the time you have symptoms, it may already have spread and become more difficult to treat. Lung cancer screening with a low-dose CT scan is a powerful tool to diagnose lung cancer in individuals who are at high risk at an early stage, when it is much more likely to be curable. An estimated 9 million Americans are considered at high risk for lung cancer, and if only half of those at high risk were screened, more than 15,000 could be saved. Despite this lifesaving opportunity, fewer than 5 percent of high-risk Americans have been screened for lung cancer. According to the American Lung Association’s LUNG FORCE initiative, here are the top four things everyone should know about lung cancer screening: 1. A low-dose CT Scan is the only tool that reduces the lung cancer mortality rate for those at high risk. Low-dose CT scan is a special kind of X-ray that takes many pictures as you lie on a table that slides in and out of the machine. A computer then combines these pictures into a detailed picture of your body. It is painless and quick. 2. Screening is not recommended for everyone. Screening is recommended for those considered at high risk for the disease. To learn more about your risk, take the lung cancer screening eligibility quiz at SavedByTheScan.org and speak to your doctor if you think you may be at risk. 3. Awareness of lung cancer screening is critically low. Despite the lifesaving potential of screening, 84 percent of those who qualify are unfamiliar with the low-dose CT scan, according to the American Lung Association’s 4th annual Lung Health Barometer. To raise awareness about lung cancer screening, the American Lung Association’s LUNG FORCE initiative has partnered with the Ad Council to launch the “Saved By The Scan” public awareness campaign – urging everyone to learn more about lung cancer screening. 4. Screening is covered by most healthcare plans. Lung cancer screening is now covered by Medicare and most healthcare plans for those considered at high risk. However, according to the Lung Health Barometer, only 15 percent of those who qualify for screening are aware that it is covered by Medicare and most healthcare plans at no cost. About the American Lung Association in South Dakota The American Lung Association in South Dakota is the leading organization working to save lives by improving lung health and preventing lung disease, through research, education and advocacy. The work of the American Lung Association is focused on four strategic imperatives: to defeat lung cancer; to improve the air we breathe; to reduce the burden of lung disease on individuals and their families; and to eliminate tobacco use and tobacco-related diseases.

By Nikki Prosch SDSU Extension Health & Physical Activity Field Specialist In South Dakota and the U.S. cancer is the second leading cause of death among adults. Cancer can affect people of all ages and the vast classifications of cancers make it a complex disease. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently released a new Vital Signs factsheet based on data from 2005-2014 that links overweight and obesity to 13 different types of cancers. These 13 cancers make up 40% of all cancer diagnosis and include cancer of the liver, kidneys, thyroid, breast, pancreas, ovaries and others. Weight & Cancer Risk Many factors can increase your risk for cancer, including tobacco use, family history, age and exposure to chemicals or other substances. However, according to the CDC, avoiding tobacco and keeping a healthy weight are among the most important controllable behaviors people can do to lower their risk. People who are overweight or obese can have changes occur in their body that may lead to cancer, changes such as increased inflammation or increases in certain hormones. Key Findings: • Two in three US adults weigh more than recommended. • Overweight and obesity are associated with at least 13 types of cancer. • More than 630,000 people in the US are diagnosed with a cancer associated with overweight and obesity. What can be done? • Communities can continue to work to provide access to safe and easy physical activity opportunities, make it easier to choose healthy food options where people live, support cancer control programs that focus on prevention, education, screening, quality of care and survivorship, and partner with local businesses to make healthy eating and physical activity the easy choice for community members. • Individually, everyone can eat a healthy diet, engage in the recommended amount of physical activity each week, lose weight (if above recommended) or maintain a healthy weight, and support community and state efforts around nutrition and physical activity prevention and promotion. José-Marie Griffiths, president of Dakota State University • At-Large—Kevin Doyle, retired partner with Eide Bailly LLP, former Trustee for USD Foundation The Board of Regents is working with Zachary Smith and Sophie Stava of the executive search firm, Witt/Kieffer, to identify and review candidates. The search process gets underway this month. Contingent on a successful search, Schieffer said the timeline calls for the new president of the University of South Dakota to be appointed this spring and begin duties on or around July 1, 2018.
