Call for COVID-19 Stories

Earlier this year, ATS members began answering the call for health care workers to address a surge in COVID-19 critical care cases, while simultaneously creating and promoting resources for the broader pulmonary community to meet the unprecedented needs associated with the pandemic. Without a doubt, members who have been or continue to work on the frontlines have experienced an event that bears little resemblance to anything else in their professional lives. What has that been like? Personally? Professionally?

We want to hear your story, and have launched a “Call for COVID-19 Stories” to help guide future crisis planning, research pursuits and critical care protocols, and to connect our members with one another as the fight against COVID-19 continues.

Share your story, and learn more.
