Extract

I would like to thank Dr. Varkey for his insightful comments. I will attempt to address the comments in the sequence in which they were offered.

I am pleased that Dr. Varkey found the meeting intellectually and personally satisfying, as Richard Irwin, MD, FCCP (the Scientific Program Chair), the Scientific Program Committee, and the American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP) staff made considerable effort to ensure these attributes. In addition, attendees submitted evaluation forms in order to receive their continuing medical education (CME) certificates, and some of the highlights noted on the evaluations include the following: 93% of respondents thought it was a valuable experience; 90.4% thought the educational content was very high; 91.6% thought the quality of the speakers was excellent; 88.7% thought there was adequate time for the exhibit hall; and 87.5% thought the exhibitors provided relevant information.
