CHEST Foundation recognizes physicians who make a world of difference in lung health

(Northbrook, IL, October 7, 2003) CHEST 2003, the annual scientific assembly of the American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP) is not only an opportunity to share the latest in cardiopulmonary and critical care research, but it also is a time to acknowledge the numerous educational activities and programs that raise public awareness about diseases of the chest and the importance of lung health. During CHEST 2003 in Orlando, The CHEST Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the ACCP, will mark its seventh year in supporting lung health and critical care initiatives in communities, and its fifth year in providing awards and grants that recognize medical professionals for their outstanding community service and patient care projects. By blending specialty medicine, public health, and a commitment to serve those in need, The CHEST Foundation strives to improve lung health for patients and communities through educational programs, research, and raising public awareness about diseases of the chest and their prevention.

The CHEST Foundation will open CHEST 2003 with its annual "Making a Difference" Awards Dinner, which honors the recipients of the Governors Community Service Awards. The Awards recognize medical professionals worldwide who, through their humanitarian efforts, have helped establish community-based health and wellness programs. In addition, The CHEST Foundation and the ACCP Industry Advisory Council will present the American Lung Association of Florida-Central Area with a grant to support its Open Airways program in Florida schools.

The recognition continues during the Convocation Awards Ceremony on Sunday, October 26, as The CHEST Foundation names the Distinguished Scholars in respiratory health and thrombosis. The "Distinguished Scholar" program was developed to incorporate a specific area of cardiopulmonary and critical care medicine encompassed by ACCP's membership to extend its impact in clinical practice.

On Sunday, October
