• The California Society of Pulmonary Rehabilitation (CSPR)
  • CSPR is proud to announce an outstanding two day annual conference to be held in beautiful San Diego, California May 17th-18th. This is just before the annual International Conference of the American Thoracic Society (ATS). This program is geared for scientists, physicians, nurses and therapists dedicated to the field of pulmonary rehabilitation. If you yourself are not a health care professional, you might like to make your pulmonologist or pulmonary rehabilitation team aware of what we consider the best program ever put together in this venue.
  • American speakers in order of appearance include, Drs. Bart Celli, Barry Make, Ken Landis, Dick ZuWallack, and Richard Casaburi plus Roy McCoy RRT, Brian Tiep, MD and Patrick Dunn, RRT. Well-known international speakers will come from England, Hungary, Canada and Belgium to speak at this conference. To see the full program go to the CSPR website at www.cspr.org. Click here to download it and bring it in to your pulmonologist or rehab team so they can see for themselves what a special program this is? I'm sure they will be as impressed by the topics and slate of speakers as they are by unusually reasonable price.
  • In addition to allowing interaction with these outstanding speakers, this smaller, more intimate conference is a wonderful opportunity to network with others dedicated to the pulmonary patient and pulmonary rehabilitation. We look forward to meeting many of you there!

  • Our next quarterly issue in June will touch on the high points of what is new from the annual CSPR (California Society of Pulmonary Rehabilitation) meeting, the annual International ATS (American Thoracic Society meeting, as well as an article Dr. Petty has promised on congestive heart failure.
  • In the meantime, stay well!
