Read about the top sessions from Scientific Program Committee Chair for CHEST 2022, Subani Chandra, MD, FCCP, and CHEST 2023 Chair, Aneesa Das, MD, FCCP.

There will be more than 300 educational sessions at the upcoming CHEST 2022 Annual Meeting, which can be overwhelming for a first-time attendee or for someone who is interested in all things chest medicine.

To help break it down and share some sneak peeks, Scientific Program Committee Chair for CHEST 2022, Subani Chandra, MD, FCCP, and CHEST 2023 Chair, Aneesa Das, MD, FCCP, share their top session picks for CHEST 2022.

Dr. Chandra’s picks:

  • Sessions on health care disparities:

    • Racial and Gender bias in Health care system (both as a physician and as a patient)
    • The Use of Race in Pulmonary Function Testing
    • Health care disparities in PAH
    • Disparities in the management of lung cancer

    • Emerging Evidence in Asthma and Obstructive Sleep Apnea Overlap
  • Interactive sessions:
    • Pardon the Interruption sessions
    • CHEST Challenge

In addition to the sessions, Dr. Chandra is most looking forward to reconnecting with her CHEST colleagues after 2 years of online CHEST meetings and, of course, the many simulation-based learning opportunities that no one provides better than CHEST!

Dr. Das’s picks:

  • Pardon the Interruption 2022:

Dr. Das is most excited that all CHEST 2022 panels will not represent only one point of view or perspective. Every single educational session will feature presenters from a variety of backgrounds, including diversity of gender, race, credentialing, institutions, and years of experience in medicine.
