Note from the Clinical Research and Quality Improvement NetWork Chair…

I want to start by thanking all of the NetWork Steering Committee members for their valued time and contributions. Last year, our steering committee members submitted 17 sessions for the CHEST Annual Meeting 2019, many of which were presented at the conference. Quality improvement is one of the new domains of our NetWork and was also the focus of our featured lecture at CHEST 2019 titled, “Quality Improvement and Clinician Burnout - Is There a Connection?” by Dr. Octavian Ioachimescu. 

Our steering committee deeply values the input of our membership and is always looking for ways to improve our engagement and to deliver educational content that is most relevant to you. There are several ways mentioned below in which you can get involved with the NetWork.

I feel honored and blessed to be given the opportunity to introduce myself to the NetWork members. I am an Assistant Professor of Internal Medicine at Texas Christian University and the University of North Texas Health Sciences Center’s School of Medicine. I serve as an attending physician in pulmonary and critical care medicine at Baylor Scott and White Medical Center in Waxahachie, TX. My career in medicine started in Pakistan, where I graduated from Rawalpindi Medical College in Rawalpindi. I completed my pulmonary fellowship from Bronx Lebanon Hospital Center, New York, NY, and critical care fellowship from Montefiore Medical Center, New York, NY. My areas of interest are lung cancer and endobronchial and critical care ultrasonography.

At the beginning of my pulmonary fellowship, I was advised by my mentor, Dr. Adrish, to join CHEST and apply to a steering committee of my interest. I have been very fortunate to be part of the Clinical Research and Quality Improvement NetWork for the past 4 years. It has given me the opportunity to propose and grade sessions for CHEST annual meetings that, in turn, has allowed me to contribute to pulmonary and critical care medicine and learn from amazing leaders in these fields. CHEST has really helped me professionally and to academically grow. I anticipate continuing to be part of the CHEST family and serve in the field under the leadership of incredible mentors at CHEST. The Clinical Research and Quality Improvement NetWork is just one of the many routes one can contribute to CHEST.
