#CHESTChat: Gearing up for a Virtual #CHEST2020

It’s a year like no other and a conference like we’ve never done before! This October, CHEST is hosting a live, immersive, and completely online conference that promises an engaging, educational, and fun experience! This year’s annual meeting features five simultaneous channels and more than 100 hours of live content. The virtual event kicks off on Sunday, October 18, and concludes on Wednesday, October 21, with multiple tracks, team-based sessions, and bite-sized learning. There’s sure to be something for everyone!

The keynote address by Dr. Anthony Fauci, the Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) at the United States National Institutes of Health, starts on Sunday, October 18, at 8:45 am CT. Dr. Fauci will address current clinical guidelines and research for treating COVID-19, what to expect if/when a second wave hits, and how to fight a resurgence of a pandemic. Following his address will be a live Q&A panel with top faculty members.

Join us for the latest in pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine at CHEST Annual Meeting 2020. We’ll also have hundreds of hours of prerecorded sessions for on demand learning, scientific abstracts, and case reports to watch. And because it’s CHEST, there will be live games, prizes, and some surprises in store!
