After two years of advancing global respiratory health amid the unprecedented challenges of COVID-19, pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine professionals will come together—face-to-face, safely—in San Francisco for the ATS 2022 International Conference in May.
This “Welcome Home” reception and fundraiser is a great opportunity to celebrate the return to an in-person meeting with friends and colleagues from around the world and show support for the ATS Research Program.
Bolstering young investigators as they strive to launch independent careers dedicated to innovation in patient care, the ATS Research Program has awarded over $21.9 million in research grants for pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine.
“The Respiratory Innovation Summit is an opportunity for global leaders and innovators from all areas of the respiratory industry to come together to share ideas and propose solutions for some of the most intractable problems in pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine,” said ATS President Lynn M. Schnapp, MD, ATSF. This year’s focus areas are fibrosis, inflammation, and COVID-19.
Exemplary contributions to the field of respiratory health will be recognized during the International Conference, starting with the presentation of the Jo Rae Wright Award for Outstanding Service, the Public Service Award, and the World Lung Health Award at the Opening Ceremony.
The International Conference will highlight the patient perspective with dedicated activities including the Patients & Experts Forum, the PAR Path in the Exhibit Hall, a PAR symposium on inclusion, and patient speakers for several scientific symposia.
