David Center

Please join us for the Ninth Annual ATS Foundation Research Program Benefit on Sat., May 20 during the ATS International Conference in Washington, D.C.

We look forward to honoring David M. Center, MD, with the Breathing for Life Award—our highest award for philanthropy, scientific achievement, and commitment to mentorship.

For the past 30 years, Dr. Center has served as chief of Pulmonary Medicine for Boston University. Jeffrey Glassroth, MD, one of the first fellows to train under Dr. Center, considers him a “triple threat.” “He’s a superb clinician, investigator, and teacher,” says Dr. Glassroth. “He’s also a person of tremendous integrity.”

When you join us for the benefit you’ll:

  • Support research grants for promising young investigators;
  • Celebrate David M. Center, MD, and the Research Program awardees;
  • Reconnect with ATS friends from around the globe!

Ticket packages consist of a cluster of cocktail tables with chairs and one tall bar table. Food is served buffet style at this reception.

You can choose a group package and celebrate with your department, or choose individual tickets and mingle with colleagues and friends.

Not only will your ticket package get you reserved seating at the benefit, it’s a great way to support the ATS Foundation Research Program—100% of your gift goes to research awards.
