The Society of Thoracic Surgeons held its 55th Annual Meeting in San Diego, California, in January 2019.
Dr. Keith S. Naunheim delivered his Presidential Address: "Anger Management 101: Why Am I Angry? Let Me Count the Ways," in which he pointed to resilience as the key to the survival of cardiothoracic surgery.
“Our specialty has been and continues to be under assault from multiple directions and we have to respond on every front. I am convinced that we can and will meet those future challenges and prevail.”
