CHEST 2020 Awards and Recognition

Honor and Memorial Lectures and Annual Awards

Each year, CHEST honors our colleagues and physicians who are making significant or meritorious contributions to chest medicine. Honorees are recognized for advancing work in specific areas that are critical to fulfilling our mission, including mentorship, training, and leadership. The individuals who are selected for these lectureships have been nominated and selected by their peers.

The 2020 Honor and Memorial Lectures and Annual Awards cover the areas of educators, critical care, cardiopulmonary physiology, interventional medicine, mechanical ventilation, COPD, and more.
