Gather with the CHEST community at the Welcome Reception, other special events

End your first day at CHEST 2023 with a celebration of community featuring the food, music, and dance of Hawaiʻi and the Pacific Islands.

The CHEST 2023 All Attendee Welcome Reception, sponsored by Viatris and Theravance Biopharma, will be held Sunday, from 5:15 pm to 8 pm, immediately following the Opening Session on the Great Lawn of the Hilton Hawaiian Village.

The reception will allow attendees to unwind from the day and reconnect with colleagues over a delicious lūʻau feast. The evening will include live music and traditional dances from Hawaiʻi, Polynesia, and the Pacific—all overlooking a lagoon with ocean views.

The Welcome Reception is just one of many special events that will bring members together for networking and fun at CHEST 2023.

The Networks Mixer, on Monday from 4 pm to 5 pm, in the Children’s Courtyard on the third floor of the convention center, brings together the seven member communities within CHEST that focus on specific areas of chest medicine. All registered attendees are invited to join the mixer to meet the Network Chairs and to learn more about each group and how to get involved with CHEST through a Network.

The ʻOhana Mixer, on Tuesday from 6 pm to 7 pm, in the Hilton Hawaiian Village South Pacific room, is an opportunity for CHEST attendees to celebrate the spirit of community that unites across differences. Attendees can network with each other, meet the members of newly formed Interest Groups, and socialize with presenters from three local CHEST Community Connections organizations. 

The fun will continue Tuesday night at the CHEST Challenge Championship event, from 7:30 pm to 8:45 pm, in the Hilton Hawaiian Village Coral Ballroom. Join MC extraordinaire, William Kelly, MD, FCCP, as three top pulmonary and critical care training programs go head-to-head in a live, Jeopardy-style game. Attendees can mix, mingle, and watch the teams compete while challenging their own medical knowledge.
