News From the NetWorks

Note from the incoming NetWork Chair…

The Pulmonary Vascular Disease NetWork has been hard at work over the past several months. From preparing programs for CHEST 2019 to developing content for live learning courses to advancing a NetWork research project, we have expanded the scope of our activities to engage a broader base of the NetWork. We hope that these projects will entice new members of the NetWork to participate in program planning for the upcoming year.  

We look forward to seeing you in New Orleans at CHEST 2019 and hope that you will join us at the annual program planning meeting to be held on Tuesday, October 22, 2019, from 12 pm-1 pm; details on location of the meeting will be disclosed at a later date. Please make sure to attend the NetWork meeting on Wednesday, October 23, 2019, from 7:30-8:30 am. We will be announcing our featured speaker soon.
