Leadership Summit Held in September

Earlier this month Society leadership across several key domains engaged in spirited discussions at the Summit, organized in San Antonio, Texas. These discussions generated bold ideas aimed at sharing the strong science that attendees of the International Conference have come to expect, and building ATS’s presence beyond its membership. Discussions largely focused on short and long-term goals related to membership, the conference and education, advocacy, organizational structure, scientific innovations, and clinical and patient priorities.
