A note of sincere thanks to all of you as CTS members. We are proud to represent you and your work as innovative, tireless clinicians and scientists. Please know that we are grateful for your unique and often unrecognized contributions to CTS, and the remarkable care and oversight that you provide to persons with lung disease. We are here to serve you. Angela Wang MD, immediate past CTS president and current editor of CTS Inspirations has highlighted below some of the unique contributions many of you are making to the science and practice of pulmonary medicine in the form of presentations at the Upcoming ATS meeting in Washington DC.
