Dr. Trudeau was a forward-thinking physician whose vision spurred the founding of the ATS, as well as its growth as a world-renowned leader in lung research and education over the last hundred-plus years.

To recognize his distinguished achievements and honor those who share his vision, the ATS has established the Edward Livingston Trudeau Society to honor individuals who have made a legacy gift. 

Members of the Edward Livingston Trudeau Society receive:

  • A Trudeau Society contributor ribbon to be worn on their name tags during the ATS International Conference;
  • Special recognition on the Honor Roll of Donors; and
  • Invitations to special events.

To become a member, please contact us and let us know that you have made an estate gift to the American Thoracic Society. Examples of such gifts are:

  • Designating the ATS as a charitable beneficiary in a will or trust;
  • Naming the ATS as owner and/or beneficiary of a life insurance plan;
  • Indicating the ATS as a beneficiary of a retirement plan account; and
  • Funding a life-income gift with the ATS as the charitable beneficiary.

If you have included the ATS in your estate plans contact the ATS Development Department at or (212) 315-6465 to inform us about the provision you have made so that we can properly thank you and honor you as a member of the Edward Livingston Trudeau Society. All information you provide will remain confidential.
