Who We Are

The New York State Thoracic Society (NYSTS) is a state chapter of the American Thoracic Society representing the state’s chest physicians.  Formerly called the New York State Trudeau Society, NYSTS is named after Edward Livingston Trudeau (1845-1915), the first American investigator to culture the tubercle bacillus, which is the causative agent of tuberculosis.  Inspired by his own open air cure of tuberculosis, he founded the Adirondack Cottage Sanitarium at Saranac Lake in 1884.  At the Annual NYSTS Assembly, a lectureship bears Dr. Trudeau’s name.
