Philly Hosts ATS - May 17th to 22nd

Founded in 1905, ATS is the largest and best organized international forum for thoracic disease, with more than 15,000 physicians, research scientists, nurses and other allied healthcare professionals (25 percent of which reside in countries other than the U.S.).  With annual meeting attendance exceeding 16,000 in recent years, very few cities have the convention and hotel facilities to host such an event.  In fact, the last and only time Philadelphia played host to ATS was in 1958, when attendance was 2,476.  There are multiple academic centers in Philadelphia region that have actively contributed to ATS over the years.  This year, physicians and scientists from Jefferson will have significant roles in presenting multiple abstracts, leading sunrise seminars, and conducting meet-the-professors.  In addition, Jefferson will host an alumni reception at the Hamilton building.  Jefferson will also play a leadership role in organizing a pilot  initiative by ATS to target medical students for an academic career in thoracic disease.
