COVID-19: Courses and Events Updates

Given the recent global impact of COVID-19, CHEST is committed to monitoring and assessing our upcoming courses and events to ensure the safety and well-being of our members, attendees, and staff. With this in mind, CHEST is continually considering the following: 

  • Updated reports from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) of the rapidly escalating spread of COVID-19;
  • Our responsibility to consider the safety of meeting participants by modeling current recommendations on social distancing;
  • Recognition of the strain that medical professionals are under, including our program chairs, faculty, and potential attendees; and
  • Travel restrictions that have been, and are, being put on medical professionals.

Please feel free to contact Rich Schuch, EdD, Senior Director, Live Learning and Education Operations, at rschuch@chestnet.org, or Suzanne Sletto, CAE, Director of Leadership Operations and Volunteer Engagement at ssletto@chestnet.org with any questions you may have related to the status of CHEST courses and events.
