Conference coverage: Congreso Nacional de Neumologia y Cirugia de Torax


Cancun, Quintana Roo – Mexico

I’m here at the National conference for pulmonologists and thoracic surgeons this year to hopefully interview (and possible recruit some surgeons to the research project).

It’s already been an eventful day, with several excellent presentations this morning as attendees continue to arrive to the official beginning of the conference tomorrow morning.   Extensive discussions on the multi-drug resistant tuberculosis started today and will continue for the rest of the week in addition to offering aimed at multiple specialties including surgery, nursing, respiratory therapy, pulmonology and general internists.

One of the featured presenters is Dr. Richard Light, MD who almost seems like family to me at this point, since I’ve been reading much of his previous work while I write a new case presentation about dual port thoracoscopy.  He’s one of the many people I hope to catch up with for a few minutes over the next few days.

Wish me luck!  I’ll continue to post about updates over the next several days.
