Lung Disease Week at the ATS - 2023 Calendar

Lung Disease Week at the ATS 2022

Throughout 2023, the ATS Public Advisory Roundtable (PAR) is hosting its updated and eleventh annual “Lung Disease Week at the ATS” series, a society-wide initiative that recognizes the many lung and airway disorders for which ATS PAR member organizations provide support and guidance to patients and their families. For a series of one-week periods, ATS PAR brings patient issues to the front and center of the Society’s agenda. Working with its PAR partners, the ATS develops, aggregates, and hosts links to patient-centered disease-specific content on its web site.
