Thank you for joining us at CHEST 2020. While we weren’t able to meet in person, we were able to stay connected for a jam-packed meeting full of meaningful information, interactive education, entertainment, and networking in new ways.
We know CHEST may look a little different this year, and let’s be honest, you may look different too. (Think blazer on the top and pajamas on the bottom.) We promise that this year’s different will still be great! In fact, this year’s meeting is jam-packed with educational content and unique opportunities to customize your learning experience.
Game day is coming soon! Get ready to cheer on pulmonary and critical care medicine fellows-in-training as they compete to be number one in the CHEST Challenge Championship during CHEST Annual Meeting 2020, Tuesday, October 20, 6:00-7:00 pm CT.
Victor Test, MD, FCCP, Program Chair of CHEST Annual Meeting 2020, shares his thoughts on this year’s virtual event. Find out why he thinks the meeting, which has been completely reimagined, may be one of CHEST’s best yet, and take a deeper dive into what he’s looking forward to most.
Going virtual definitely has its perks: Hosting our exhibit hall in an online environment has given us the opportunity to approach Experience CHEST in a bigger and better way than ever before!
