Pulmonary Pathology Society Members can now access the Pulmonary Pathology Review Journal Club blog through the PPS website. This blog that started out as a monthly journal club at Mayo Clinic, Rochester in December 2000, currently includes interseted faculty at all three Mayo Clinic sites as well as the Universties of Michigan, Vermont, and Calgary. The blog is dedicated to regular and succinct review of articles selected from peer-reviewed literarure that are likely to be of value to anyone interested in diagnostic pulmonary pathology.
PPS would like to thank Drs. Myers and Tazelaar for making their Pulmonary Pathology Review Journal Club blog available to our memebrs through the PPS website.
The PPS Specialty Society Meeting at CAP16 in Las Vegas was a great success! It was the first PPS meeting to be held in conjunction with the CAP; and it was the CAP's first time to host specialty society meetings.
PPS Program Committee Chair Philip T. Cagle served as emcee of the event. Great lectures on cutting edge pulmonary pathology topics were given by PPS members Kirtee Raparia, Ross Miller, Neal Lindeman, Marina Vivero, Lynette Sholl, and PPS President Tim Allen.
Over 170 CAP attendees registered for the meeting, which ran from 5:30 PM to 8 PM Saturday evening, September 24th!
