Dr. O’Hara lecture “New Proposal for the Classification of Lung Adenocarcinoma: What Happened to BAC” was presented to a standing room only group of pathologists. After dinner Dr. O’Hara presented two cases of lung cancer to further illustrate how the changes in classification impact clinical care of the patients.
