2010 Pulmonary Care Symposium:
And You Thought Fast Cars Were a Thrill

May 6th and 7th, 2010

Sloan Convention Center
Holiday Inn University Plaza, Bowling Green KY
Jointly sponsored by the American Lung Association and the Kentucky Thoracic Society
with special support from The Medical Center

Course Description
This course is designed to provide a comprehensive knowledge base on the management and treatment of several pulmonary and critical care disorders. The two-day program features lectures led by experienced, highly regarded clinicians from the region who are currently making significant contributions in their given fields.
The planning committee strives to make this conference more than simply an educational event. We also do our best to foster a fun networking environment for all involved. Because this year's conference is being held in the heart of Corvette country we decided to give the conference a car theme. "And he thought fast cars were a thrill" was the tagline for the 1978 movie Corvette Summer.
