ATS Rally on Capitol Hill: Lab Coats for Lungs

May 2017

As part of the May International Conference in Washington D.C., the ATS will be holding a rally on Capitol Hill.

Date:  Tuesday, May 23rd
Time:  5:30-6:30 pm
Location:  Upper Senate (Park across Delaware Avenue from Russell Senate Office building/across Constitution Ave. from the U.S. Capitol)

The goal of the Lab Coats for Lungs rally is to demonstrate our strong support for the issues that define our membership and the patients we care for: research funding, health insurance, clean air, tobacco control and other polices that effect respiratory health.  By gathering in numbers on Capitol Hill, we hope to send a strong message to members of Congress that respiratory health matters.

All rally attendees are encouraged to wear their lab coats to provide visual showing of support for lung health.  ATS members planning on attending the rally are encouraged to  sign up for the rally on the ATS website.

Don't forget to bring your lab coat!
