CHEST Annual Meeting Program

The CHEST Annual Meeting 2019 will feature new and exciting ways to make your learning, practice, and life easier. We will be implementing a Wellness Room for rest and relaxation, child care options for the busy physician parent, and of course new and easy ways to get your CME/MOC credits. The CHEST annual meeting has had a long standing history of featuring educational topics in Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep medicine, but beyond this, we strive to deliver that education in a way that will make lessons learned long lasting and clinically relevant. Some of those educational sessions include:
