ATS “Honor Your Mentor” Program

How will you honor your mentor?

Your mentor has, no doubt, been one of the most influential figures in your life, as well as the lives of many other clinicians, researchers, nurses, and educators in respiratory, critical care, and sleep medicine.

When you make a gift to the ATS through the “Honor Your Mentor” program, your generosity supports core ATS programs that foster mentor-mentee collaboration. Your name and your mentor’s name will appear together on the ATS Honor Roll of Donors, and throughout ATS publications. We will also send your mentor a card letting your mentor know about your thoughtful tribute gift.

Honor your mentor, and pay it forward to the next generation, today!
