2021 NetWork Events

CHEST NetWorks Events

CHEST NetWorks are special interest groups that focus on particular areas of chest medicine. The NetWorks participate in the CHEST Annual Meeting in a number of ways—so whether you’re already a NetWork member or are looking to decide which to join, see how you can get involved and connect with others who are interested in the same niche.


Featured Lectures and Open Forums

Held virtually in advance of CHEST 2021, each NetWork’s Featured Lecture and Open Forum session includes a panel discussion or lecture presented by an expert in that field, as well as opportunities to network with leadership and other members of your NetWork and determine projects for the upcoming year.
