A Headline Year in Pulmonology: The Lungcast 2023 Recap

Published on: 

From breakthroughs in disease intervention and vaccines, to global developments in air quality and COVID-19, Lungcast reflects on the people and stories that shaped this year in pulmonology.

Though some subjects are clear favorites, it is nearly impossible to select a single answer to the question, “What was the biggest story in pulmonology this year?”

Since the American Lung Association (ALA) and HCPLive launched Lungcast in the summer of 2020, the field of respiratory health has evolved in unprecedented fashion.
