It’s also a great way for ATS International Conference attendees to continue the conversation!

ATS members are kept informed of the Society’s advocacy efforts with complimentary subscriptions to the ATS Washington Letter, ATS Coding and Billing Quarterly, and ATS Research News Quarterly.

ATS members work together to advocate for cleaner air, smoking cessation, and tuberculosis control, among other public health issues. The Annual ATS Hill Day has brought together advocacy volunteers in Washington, D.C. where participating members gain insight into key issues for the Society and advocate on Capitol Hill on behalf of their patients with respiratory, critical care, and sleep disorders.
