On behalf of the California Thoracic Society (CTS) we wanted to personally invite all trainees and early career professionals, including students, residents, fellows, nurses/NPs, and respiratory therapists who reside in the state of California to participate in our 7th annual poster competition featuring case reports and research pertaining to the adult and pediatric pulmonary, critical care and sleep medicine. This poster competition will take place at the annual CTS 2021 Conference. It will be held virtually on Thursday, January 21, 2021 from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m.

Abstracts are due December 28, 2020. Of note, abstracts submitted for ATS 2020 can also be submitted for the CTS 2021 conference. This is a great opportunity to showcase your research and amazing cases to a broader audience.
