We are thrilled today here at Pulm PEEPs to be coming to you live from the American Thoracic Society 2023 Annual Meeting. We are joined by three fantastic speakers, and ATS leaders to discuss the highlights and events of the conference, and to share some great learning points along the way. The episode is being released immediately after recording today, Monday 5/22/23, so if you’re at the conference now make sure to listen for some extremely timely recommendations. If you’re not here in DC, we’ve highlighted some learning points that you can take away and some wisdom on how to maximize your conference experience!
We will be coming out with another episode tomorrow highlighting one of the ATS sessions, and we will continue to review symposiums from the conference throughout the year with ATS members and organizers.
