2017 Annual Scientific Assembly New York State Thoracic Society
The Scientific Assembly which the Society holds each year is regarded as one of the premier educational events of the year for those working in or close to the thoracic/respiratory field. Nationally known speakers covering a wide range of topics as well as case studies assembled by members that enable attendees to upgrade their knowledge in a forum which allows for discussion at a level not usually found in many conferences. This has also proven to be an opportunity for attendees to interact with colleagues away from the demands of their practices/work settings.
