What’s new for CHEST 2019?


Head to New Orleans this October for CHEST Annual Meeting 2019 for the latest original research, postgraduate courses, interactive case-based discussions, simulation sessions, CHEST Games, and more! CHEST 2019 allows clinician members of the entire health-care team to stay up to date on pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine. There are many new and exciting things happening at CHEST 2019, and we are excited to give you a sneak peek.

The simulation sessions are better than ever and include a full day of cadaver-based courses and brand new hands-on sessions in bronchoscopy, advanced critical care echocardiography, and airway management, that will put your skills to the test. You don’t want to miss these simulation sessions that allow you to learn from our expert faculty to advance and develop valuable skills and apply your knowledge.

Visit CHEST in the exhibit hall to see the new additions we have added to amplify your experience. The new FISH Bowl innovation competition will allow you to learn about new solutions and ideas that were submitted in education and clinical disease for pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine. The finalists will be presenting live in Experience CHEST and competing for prizes in each category. CHEST games will be back again in a new space in the exhibit hall. Be sure to bring your team to play the popular Nodal Nemesis and the other games that test your skills in new and creative ways.

CHEST 2019 plans to make your life easier by providing you with the latest updates in patient care at the annual meeting, but we are also planning on making it easier in other ways. New this year, you can update your professional headshot in our new complimentary headshot booth. Plan on a visit to the new CHEST Wellness Zone. This area is designed to help you relax and recharge while at CHEST and includes meditation, posture consultants, aromatherapy, foot massage, and yoga. Attend CHEST 2019 with some peace of mind knowing that your children can be cared for at the Kiddie Corp childcare program for kids ages 6 months to 12 years.

According to William Kelly, MD, FCCP, CHEST 2019 Program Chair, “We are excited about these new opportunities that will help you improve your patient care. We’re taking concrete steps to make your learning, your practice, and your life a little easier.”

We look forward to seeing you at CHEST 2019 in New Orleans, Louisiana, October 19-23!
