Diversity Forum

Sunday, May 19
11:45 a.m. - 1:15 p.m

The annual ATS Diversity Forum focuses on diversity within the fields of pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine and research. Our speaker will be Marc Nivet, EVP of Institutional Advancement, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, who will address career and diversity issues followed by a question and answer period.

The Minority Trainee Development Scholarships (MTDS), which recognize trainees who are members of underrepresented minority groups, will also be presented at this forum. MTDS recipients are selected for the quality of the science in their submitted abstract, among other criteria. At this Forum we will also recognize the recipient of the 2019 ATS Fellowship in Health Equality.

All conference attendees, including past MTDS recipients, are invited to attend this forum which provides an opportunity for discussion and networking. Attendees will find inspiration and valuable career insights. The Diversity Forum is organized and presented by the ATS Membership Committee and will be hosted by its chair Janet Lee, MD. The scholarships will be presented by Yolanda Mageto, MD. The Minority Trainee Development Scholarships are supported by the American Thoracic Society.
