Dr. Fauci Headlines COVID-19-focused Opening Session at CHEST 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic upended the practices and lives of CHEST members—and changed CHEST 2020 into a virtual meeting—so it’s fitting that this year’s Opening Session focused on the defining global event of the year.

Anthony S. Fauci, MD, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the US National Institutes of Health, delivered this year’s keynote address on Sunday, October 18.

Dr. Fauci delivered an overview of the public health and scientific challenges of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and the COVID-19 disease it causes. Before diving into those topics, however, he offered a special tribute to all of the CHEST members who have worked tirelessly during the pandemic and remained dedicated to patient care.
