Mount Nittany Health is pleased to announce the addition of Adrienne Wise, RRT, as the coordinator for the organization’s lung nodule program.

Wise holds a Bachelor of Science in Respiratory Care from Indiana University of Pennsylvania and is currently pursuing her Associate in Science in Nursing from Excelsior College. She is a registered respiratory therapist and a member of both the American Association for Respiratory Care and Tri-State Society for Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation.

In her role as the Mount Nittany Health lung nodule program coordinator, Wise is responsible for ensuring the program optimizes the quality of life for adults in central Pennsylvania through the early detection of lung cancer, by use of evidence-based best practices and a team approach.

Outside of the office, Wise enjoys spending time with her husband, Keith, their 8-year-old daughter, Sayde and son Beau, age 5.

“As the leading cause of death for both men and women, early detection of lung cancer is key to more positive outcomes,” says Wise. “Through this program, it is my goal to continue the crucial work that is being done to improve these outcomes.”

The program consists of two branches. While the first works to address the growing number of patients diagnosed with pulmonary nodules, the lung cancer-screening component offers those patients found to be at risk with low-dose lung cancer CT screenings. The lung nodule program is a service made possible by a gift from Lloyd and Dottie Huck to the Mount Nittany Health Foundation.

The lung nodule program is located at Mount Nittany Medical Center. To learn more, visit mountnittany.org/lcs or call 814.231.6881.
