Public Advisory Roundtable

Chair Kerri Connolly Danvers, MA

The ATS Public Advisory Roundtable (ATS-PAR) represents a core component of the Society and a mutually beneficial partnership wherein organizations that represent persons affected by respiratory diseases, sleep-related conditions, or critical illnesses collaborate to advance their shared educational, research, patient care, and advocacy missions. ATS-PAR brings the patient’s perspective to the Society and provides the Board with strategic guidance for retaining patients and families as a central focus of all ATS activities and programs.
