Support the ATS Foundation Through the 2019 Assembly Challenge

The 2018 ATS Assembly Challenge kicked off Nov. 27, #GivingTuesday, and continues through Dec. 31. The annual challenge taps into the grassroots community—and competitive spirit—of the ATS assemblies in support of ATS Foundation programs.

Last year, the Assembly on Allergy Immunology & Inflammation raised the most funds for the ATS Foundation. The Assembly on Critical Care led in the number of new donors.

Assemblies are also recognized for highest participation, a title held by the Assembly on Nursing in 2017. Assembly members can choose to support the ATS Foundation Research Program, MECOR, Medical Education Research, the Ziskind Award, and Assembly Awards & Scholarships.

We look forward to announcing the 2018 results!
