Forum of International Respiratory Societies (FIRS)

World Lung Day 2017

The American Thoracic Society joins the Forum for International Respiratory Societies in the call to recognize Sept. 25 as World Lung Day, an annual event dedicated to respiratory disease that helps focus attention and resources on an often overlooked, but very real threat to global health. The ATS urges you to join the cause and add your name to the petition at www.firsnet.org.
