CHEST is committed to expanding the reach of its education mission globally
Kenes Group is pleased to announce a new five-year agreement to support the international education strategy of the American College of Chest Physicians (CHEST).
CHEST is the global leader in advancing patient outcomes through innovative education, clinical research, and team-based care. CHEST’s partnership with leading professional conference organiser (PCO), Kenes Group, is for the management of a new education series—one global conference and two regional meetings each year. The mission is to provide the latest education to CHEST members and chest medicine professionals around the world who help prevent, diagnose, and treat chest diseases.
The successful planning and execution of these events will be handled by Kenes Group. The PCO will facilitate the promotion and management of CHEST’s education events outside the US to meet the objectives of the brand and grow international membership.
Iftah Amit, VP Global Sales & Marketing at Kenes Group, said, “This partnership is a fantastic opportunity to support chest physicians getting access to the latest education in the field through innovative and stimulating events available in their region. We are delighted to bring our tremendous experience and know-how in realising CHEST’s ambitious undertaking.”
Stephen Welch, Executive Vice President & Chief Executive Officer at CHEST, added, “CHEST is committed to expanding the reach of its education mission globally. By connecting our CHEST educators with clinician learners around the world, we can advance the care of patients through support of those who take care of them. Our partnership with Kenes Group is key to making this happen, and we look forward to working with them.”
With more than 19,000 members representing 100+ countries around the world, CHEST already holds education events in China, India, and the Middle East. Based on this experience and combined with the global know-how of Kenes Group, both organisations are looking forward to co-creating successful initiatives worldwide.
