“Carl” the fog has rolled into San Francisco, so I know that Summer is well underway! Hopefully, you are finding some time to enjoy the beauty and different climates that California has to offer. As you look forward to the Fall, I hope you are making plans to be at our Southern California Conference from October 4-5, 2019 at the Hotel Irvine in Irvine!
Happy Summer! The CTS Board of Directors held a very productive conference call this month. We have determined that it is time to make some amendments to our bylaws, so your input will be requested in the near future. In addition, we have an opening on the Executive Committee for Treasurer and for a Representative to the ATS Council of Chapter Representatives.
I would like to begin by congratulating our California Thoracic Society Out- standing Clinician Awardee Dr. Steven Hays, Professor of Medicine at Uni- versity of California San Francisco. Please join members of CTS in honoring Dr. Hays at the Council of Chapter Representatives reception at the ATS inter- national conference on Monday, May 20 (details included below.)
This month in our edition of CTS inspirations we are highlighting pulmonary
hypertension and the resources available here in California for managing this
challenging disease. Pulmonary hypertension remains difficult to diagnose
and difficult to manage despite the progress in available therapies over the
past two decades.
