Give Thanks for Your Mentor

Your mentor may be one of the most influential figures in your life, and you can thank them with a special gift through the ATS Honor Your Mentor Program.

When you make a gift through Honor Your Mentor, your name and your mentor’s name will be recognized on the ATS Honor Roll of Donors, and throughout the ATS International Conference. Upon request, we will send your mentor a card letting them know about your generous tribute gift.

A gift through the Honor Your Mentor Program in your mentor’s name helps sustain our core programs, which extend the number of opportunities for mentors to collaborate with their students, trainees, and other professionals, and to make progress towards conquering lung disease.

Corporate Member Program

The ATS is pleased to welcome two new companies to the 2020 Corporate Member Program at the Friend Level:

  • Breath Therapeutics, a Zambon company, is developing a first-in-class inhaled drug-device therapy for the treatment of bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome, a rare, orphan respiratory disease with high unmet need and no treatment available.
  • Health Care Originals, Inc. makes cardiopulmonary wearable systems, comprising a full stack hardware and software solution with a focus on respiratory disease, borne out of personal experience with the debilitating effects of chronic respiratory disease, not only for those diagnosed with the disease, but also their caregivers.

If your company is interested in joining one of our membership levels, our ATS 2021 Corporate Member Program will launch on March 1, 2021. Please reach out to Vlada O’Hara, associate director, Corporate Alliances for additional information on the program and benefits for the upcoming launch.
