The American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP) has a new addition to the lobby of its Northbrook, Illinois headquarters – a custom surfboard from the Hawai`i Convention Center.  The surfboard commemorates ACCP’s 77th Annual CHEST meeting at the Center, which drew 6,000 medical professionals from around the globe, one of the world’s largest gatherings of chest physicians, on October 22-26, 2011.

Over the days of the program, attendees and Center staff were invited to sign the board, and at the end of the convention, the signatures were glassed over.  The board was presented to ACCP in December in celebration of the group’s second-highest annual meeting attendance ever.
