American Thoracic Society to host free patient events during international conference in May
Date:3/21/2013

Philadelphia The American Thoracic Society (ATS) will hold its seventh annual patient-focused forums, "Breathing Better with the ATS" and "Meet-the-Expert," at the ATS International Conference in Philadelphia this May. These events are free and open to the public.

Both events are organized and hosted by the ATS Public Advisory Roundtable (ATS PAR) and will be held on Saturday, May 18th at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel.

The "Breathing Better with the ATS" forum is open to lung disease patients and their families and will feature expert speakers as well as a mix-and-mingle reception to give patients and their families a chance to interact with prominent pulmonologists from around the globe. It is also an opportunity for patients to meet other individuals who share similar experiences with lung disease. This year's forum will focus on innovations in lung health and will cover the latest clinical trials and patient engagement in research, the interplay between diet, exercise, and sleep, expanding the lung transplantation donor pool, and adult immunizations and chronic lung disease.

The "Meet-the-Expert" event offers patients an opportunity to discuss the latest in research, clinical trials, and clinical care with experts on a number of different lung diseases including sleep apnea, pulmonary fibrosis, Hermansky-Pudlak Syndrome, Alpha-1, ARDS, LAM and COPD. This event will be followed by an expert panel discussion on innovations in lung health. Complimentary parking and lunch will be provided, and an oxygen refill station for those attendees with Portable Oxygen Concentrators will be available.

What: Breathing Better with the ATS
When: Saturday, May 18, 2013, 1:00 p.m 4:00 p.m.
