ATS Signs Joint Statement in Support of COVID-19 Vaccine Mandates for All Health Care Workers

Due to the recent COVID-19 surge and the availability of safe and effective vaccines, our health care organizations and societies advocate that all health care and long-term care employers require their workers to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. This is the logical fulfillment of the ethical commitment of all health care workers to put patients as well as residents of long-term care facilities first and take all steps necessary to ensure their health and well-being.

ATS Underrepresented-in-Medicine Mentoring Program

The ATS’s new Underrepresented-in-Medicine (URM) Mentoring Program is aimed at senior fellows, post-doctoral fellows and junior faculty members who identify as a member of a URM group.  This pilot program presented by the ATS Health Equity and Diversity Committee (HEDC), will consist of formal activities, guidance by HEDC members, and peer/group mentoring.

One in-person (or hybrid) URM mentoring meeting is planned for each ATS International Conference with at least two other meetings held virtually each year.
