ATS Health Equity Fellowships              

The most-recent ATS Health of the Air Report found “[s]ignificant health benefits to be gained by U.S. communities that work to meet ATS-recommended air quality standards.” The ATS recognizes that not all communities have the same air quality challenges, with poor air-quality disproportionately impacting lower income and minority communities, leading to health inequity.

The American Thoracic Society is committed to improving health equity throughout the U.S. To this end, the ATS is pleased to accept applications for the 2022 ATS Fellowships in Health Equity and Diversity. Share your proposal today to help fight climate change and health disparities, or any topic related to improving health equity.
