Note from the Cardiovascular Medicine and Surgery NetWork Chair…

It was a very productive year for the Cardiovascular Medicine and Surgery NetWork under the leadership of past Chair, Dr. Steve Hollenberg. We won the CHEST NetWorks Challenge, had a record number of applications for steering committee positions, elected our first nonphysician steering committee member, and submitted a large number of sessions for CHEST 2020. Thank you to every NetWork member who contributed to this success. Dr. Hollenberg is a hard act to follow, and I solicit the help of every NetWork member to reach out to me, or Vice-Chair, Dr. Mark Zucker, with suggestions for improvement in how the NetWork communicates with you or can provide you with added value for your CHEST membership. Please encourage members of your team interested in cardiovascular care to join CHEST and the Cardiovascular Medicine and Surgery NetWork. This year, one focus for the NetWorks will be to increase our digital and social media presence—I welcome any suggestions, and especially volunteers, to assist in achieving this goal

As a NetWork member, you're welcome to join your NetWork Steering Committee calls. If interested in joining an upcoming call, please contact Katlyn Froslan and she will be happy to share access information.
