First, I hope to see many of you in Monterey on January 17-18. Dr Michelle Cao and the planning committee have organized another great educational conference, highlighting Pulmonary Hypertension, COPD, oxygen delivery, Ethics, and many other hot topics in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine.
Dear CTS members,
For me, the month of November is a time to give thanks. It reminds me to to
be thankful for the wonderful people in my life both at work and at home,
and grateful for a career that enables me to strive to make a difference in people’s lives and in the world every day.
I’d like to begin by personally acknowledging the disruption in many of our
lives by the power shutdowns and devastating wildfires. As I write this, our
own home has been without electricity or internet for more than 96 hours. It has been a dramatic re- minder to consider how to best prepare my family and my patients for future events.
