A year of changes -- A new year of opportunities
has been a year of changes for the Canadian Thoracic
Society (CTS). I have been given the opportunity to
highlight some of the more significant events of the
past year. On a research front, we have established
a national clinical trials group. This has been discussed
for several years at the national level, and it is finally
coming to fruition. The driving spirit behind this accomplishment
has been the Past-President of the CTS, Dr Louis-Philippe
Boulet, with the support of the Canadian Lung Association.
There are great hopes that this group will be able to
tackle clinical questions pertinent to all regions of
Canada. For individuals interested in offering suggestions
or learning more about this initiative, please go to
