ATS Rally at the U.S. Capitol: Lab Coats for Lungs

On Tuesday, May 23 the American Thoracic Society will hold a rally at the US Capitol to highlight recent proposals that would significantly impact federal funding for medical research and weaken numerous laws and regulations and subsequently harm the country’s public health. We encourage all attendees to the ATS 2017 International Conference to join the Society’s leadership at this event. Participants are encouraged to wear their lab coat at the rally to provide a visual statement of support from the medical and scientific community.

Today’s policy impacts tomorrow’s care
