CHEST members are empowered to make themselves heard and make a difference in pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine. Our committees, Networks, Board of Regents, and Presidents work diligently to ensure that CHEST addresses the key issues that affect our members, patients, and communities.

Because of our volunteer leaders, we are able to provide the most relevant and impactful content and educational offerings for the entire chest medicine community.

CHEST 2024 honor lectures and annual awards

Now accepting your nominations

Do you have a colleague or mentor who should be recognized for their work in chest medicine? Consider submitting a nomination for an honor lecture or annual award at CHEST 2024.

Each year, we honor those advancing chest medicine, providing mentorship and training, and furthering the mission of CHEST. Review the openings and criteria, then nominate a colleague or mentor worthy of recognition. Those selected for an honor lecture will be invited to present at CHEST 2024 in Boston, October 6-9, and award winners will be formally recognized at the meeting.

Advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion

We celebrate the diversity of our members and the patients we treat and strive for inclusive representation and equitable outcomes. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are part of our core values and are integral to CHEST 2024. Selection priority will be given to outstanding nominations that represent diversity of gender, race, ethnicity, and professional status.
