ATS Public Advisory Roundtable


The ATS Public Advisory Roundtable (ATS PAR) is a core component of the American Thoracic Society and a mutually beneficial partnership wherein organizations that represent persons affected by respiratory diseases, sleep-related conditions, or related critical illnesses collaborate with the American Thoracic Society to advance their shared educational, research, patient care, and advocacy goals. ATS PAR bridges the patient’s perspective to the Society and provides the Board of Directors with strategic guidance to keep patients and families as a central focus of all ATS activities and programs.

The ATS PAR has created unparalleled synergy with the ATS by involving patients in providing support, shaping policy and stimulating research. Objectives are accomplished through ATS PAR representation on standing ATS Committees and joint programs and activities that will ultimately improve the lives of individuals affected by respiratory diseases, sleep-related conditions, or related critical illnesses. Its functions are defined within the ATS PAR policies and procedures described below.

The Council of Public Representatives is comprised of individuals representing respiratory diseases, sleep-related conditions and related critical illness.
