Doctor partnership brings advanced care to mid-Michigan


LANSING, Mich. (WLNS)-Doctors from Sparrow Hospital and the Mayo Clinic laid out the latest lung cancer treatments during a special meal Wednesday.

The special event was part of Sparrow’s “Lunch with a Doctor” series.

Participants heard the latest on lung cancer diagnosis and treatments and had a chance to ask questions.

Sparrow’s partnership with the Mayo Clinic Care Clinic Network lets Sparrow doctors consult with Mayo Clinic experts to bring advanced care options to mid-Michigan.

“The resources here in this community are tremendous and the collaboration is great.  So I think that everyone is in a good position if they are diagnosed to have the best care available to them,” said Dr. Shanda H. Blackmon, associate professor of thoracic surgery.For additional health events, visit Sparrow Hospital’s website.
