FSR Executive Director Ginger Spitzer attended the 2017 ATS Public Advisory Roundtable Planning Meeting on Nov 17-18 in Miami. Our membership in PAR allows FSR to continue our work toward advocating for patients and ensuring the patient perspective into clinical and research aspects. The ATS Public Advisory Roundtable (ATS PAR) is a partnership with organizations representing persons affected by respiratory diseases, sleep-related conditions, or related critical illnesses. ATS collaborates with them to advance shared educational, research, patient care, and advocacy goals. ATS PAR is an incredibly valuable asset for FSR to further our mission.
