The CHEST 2019 Annual Meeting kicks off soon in New Orleans—home of Dixieland jazz, delicious food, and vibrant culture. CHEST is embracing “The Big Easy” this year by delivering top-notch, quality education and fun experiences to help physicians go ‘big’ for patients back home, truly optimizing their care.

“This is the premier event of the year in terms of clinical education of diseases of the chest, so you have to have the best science and information to work with,” said CHEST 2019 Program Chair William Kelly, MD, FCCP, noting that this year’s meeting saw a 40% increase in scientific abstracts and case reports submitted.

CHEST is committed to its engaging, interactive learning for the whole medical team. This includes an advanced simulation skills laboratory with great faculty, latest technology, cadaveric laboratories, and more.
