JAMA/NEJM Editors, Authors Discuss New Research

Be a part of the discussion as editors and authors present papers that were recently published in the Journal of the American Medical Association and the New England Journal of Medicine.

These interactive sessions provide a forum for attendees to have a question-and-answer period with the authors and editors, who select published papers to discuss at the conference based on their significance to the fields of critical care medicine (Session A84) and pulmonary medicine (Session A2).

These discussions are intended to provide insight into the papers, the selection process, and how research applies directly to each of these important fields of medicine.
