ADVANCING PATIENT CARE

The Society offers several programs that meet patient needs. The Patient

Information Series is a collection of more than 80 high quality, expert reviewed

fact sheets. The ATS Public Advisory Roundtable (PAR) is comprised of 15

organizations that represent people affected by respiratory diseases, sleep-

related conditions, and/or related critical illnesses. These groups collaborate

with the Society to advance shared educational, research, patient care, and

advocacy goals for the benefit of members and their patients.

SUPPORTING EARLY CAREER SCIENTISTS

The ATS Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the Society, helps clinical

investigators and scientists succeed, especially those who are just starting their

careers. The ATS Foundation Research Program offers both research grants and

recognition awards to help sustain recipients’ careers. The ATS Foundation has

awarded more than $11 million to 183 young researchers. These grants have

been leveraged to secure an additional $143 million in funding for respiratory

research from the National Institutes of Health and other sources.

PROVIDING GUIDANCE ON CLINICAL CARE

Through its official documents, the ATS establishes the latest standards of

care for a variety of adult and pediatric respiratory, critical care, and sleep

disorders. To date the Society has developed more than 100 official documents

on a wide range of topics including pediatric asthma screening, the diagnosis

and treatment of pneumonia and control of tuberculosis, and managing

conscientious objections in intensive care medicine.
