Welcome to The Big Easy! A Letter From the CHEST 2019 Chair

June 4, 2019 by CHEST Guest Writer

New Orleans is known for its relaxed, welcoming attitude; remarkable history and culture; and amazing food and entertainment. CHEST Annual Meeting 2019 is delivering all the education and experiences you need to optimize patient care.

This year may be our biggest year yet! We’ve had the most educational sessions ever proposed, covering all aspects of pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine, and 40% more scientific abstracts and cases submitted than last year. In addition to covering the science and art of managing the core medical conditions, there will be specialized tracks for your particular interests and phase of career and all members of your interprofessional team. There will be more interactive exhibits, educational games, mobile live streaming, and surprises than ever before. With our innovative learning management system and supplemental materials, you will have access to the best educational value of the year.

CHEST will also have conference-based simulation training with over 45,000 square feet of simulation—a 15% increase from last year! Learn or affirm your skills in many procedures with expert faculty, the latest technology, a real tissue laboratory, validated assessments, and so much more.

We are making your learning and travel easier, with more than a dozen new initiatives including available child care, exclusive hotel deals, a wellness zone, and much more. Once registered for the meeting, you are even automatically entered to receive one of six prizes that will make your practice and life a little easier between now and October. In a world of ever-increasing demands and pressures, CHEST is on your side.

By far the most important part of the meeting is YOU. It is your questions, your answers, your shared expertise, and your energy that creates the peer-teaching, the productive networking, and contagious fun of learning possible at CHEST—the best meeting of the year. If there is anything we can do to improve your individual experience, and/or when you have feedback or suggestions, please let us know.

We look forward to seeing you this October in beautiful New Orleans!
