The ATS Center Shows Global Reach

Learn about all that the American Thoracic Society has to offer, including its activities around the world, at the ATS Center in Booth 937 in the Exhibit Hall at Moscone Center, Halls A-C (South Building, Lower Level). Be sure to visit from 8 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. on Tuesday.

The colorful ATS Center was redesigned to feature a large touchscreen world map that illustrates the center’s theme, “ATS: Providing a World of Opportunity to Improve Global Lung Health.”

Thirty four percent of the ATS’s members hail from 129 countries, making it a truly global Society. An overarching goal of this reach is to improve world lung health, and the Society has developed initiatives and related activities to: 

  • Engage international organizations, such as the World Health Organization.
  • Provide global education, research, and research training.
  • Engage ATS members to participate in global initiatives.
  • Pursue its broad global health policy.
  • Provide technical assistance and other capacity to build support.

At the ATS Center, find out about the Society’s involvement in specific global activities, such as the Forum of International Respiratory Societies; Methods in Epidemiologic, Clinical, and Operations Research (MECOR); tuberculosis control efforts; the ATS Global Scholars Program; and peer conferences.
