Honoring a visionary can be challenging to do. But when that visionary is Dr. Pasquale “Pat” Ciaglia the decision to support a memorial lectureship in his honor was a no-brainer for us at Cook.
We are excited for our trip to Austin, Texas, to join the American College of Chest Physicians at CHEST 2014. This year’s agenda proves to have an abundance of opportunities for clinicians to sharpen their skills and learn about the latest medical innovations.
Additionally, we are excited for the Pasquale Ciaglia Memorial Lecture in Interventional Medicine. This year’s honorees include David J. Feller-Kopman, MD, FCCP, who practices at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, and Momen M. Wahidi, MD, FCCP, who practices at Duke University Hospital.
Each year, this award honors a CHEST member well known for his or her work in interventional medicine, such as clinical state of the art innovations, economic impact, invention, interventional critical care, research opportunities, and/or a host of other interesting facets of interventional medicine.
“When Dr. Ciaglia passed away in 2000, we wanted to do something to honor his legacy in medicine,” said Bruce Gingles, vice president of global technology assessment and healthcare policy at Cook Medical. “Dr. Ciaglia wrote numerous articles in CHEST journals and was a pioneer in interventional medicine. Supporting this lecture is a wonderful way to honor his work and memory.”
