Share Your COVID-19 Stories

ATS members have been answering calls to address surges in COVID-19 critical care cases, while simultaneously creating resources for the broader pulmonary community, since the beginning of this year. In such a short time, this unprecedented experience has drastically changed our knowledge of the pandemic and brought new ideas and innovations to the forefront.  

To help guide future crisis planning, research pursuits and critical care protocols, we want to hear your story. It is our hope that by collecting these stories, we can both preserve some of the lessons learned, and connect our members with one another as the fight against COVID-19 continues.

Share your story, and learn more.
