World Lung Day

25 September 2017

The Forum of Respiratory Societies (FIRS) recently launched a global charter for lung health, calling for better lung health for all and the creation of a World Lung Day on 25th September.

PATS is a signatory to the global charter. PATS joins FIRS in the call to recognize Sept. 25th as World Lung Day, an annual event dedicated to focusing attention on respiratory diseases as a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. The goal is to secure 100,000 signatures from health care professionals and organizations. We urge you to add your name to the petition at
