Join the IASLC Wellness Challenge 2023 in Singapore!
Step up in Singapore! Count your steps and be well by participating in the IASLC Wellness Challenge.
The IALSC Wellness Challenge is a four-day walk-a-thon and activity challenge held in conjunction with IASLC’s World Conference on Lung Cancer (WCLC). To encourage participation and engagement with our on-site opportunities, registration is limited to those attending WCLC in person.
Your step count will be converted to points that create opportunities to win prizes and engage in some friendly competition with your peers. Each participant will be added to a team by region, reminding us all that we are not alone in seeking wellness, taking time for ourselves, and celebrating our global community.
In addition to supporting physical and mental well-being among WCLC23 attendees, we want to support the continued wellness of our association members and partners. The IASLC Foundation’s funding opportunities are in place to support you and your career. With grants for research, education, and scientific initiatives, the Foundation’s work is the basis for a healthy, thriving specialty. Ensure the strength and wellness of all who strive to conquer lung cancer and with a contribution to complement your IASLC Wellness Challenge experience.
Special thanks to the Wellness Challenge sponsor Regeneron.
The IASLC Wellness Challenge starts on Saturday, September 9 at 8:00 SGT (Singapore) and ends on Tuesday, September 12 at 17:00 SGT (Singapore).
