The ATS encourages Industry Supported Evening Symposia in conjunction with the ATS 2024 International Conference. These programs complement the content offered by the ATS and provide an opportunity for attendees to further enrich their learning experiences during the premier educational event for Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine professionals. While the content of these programs is the sole responsibility of the supporting company or companies, the ATS encourages programs that are scientific in nature.
