The American Trauma Society (ATS) is a nationwide, non-profit, voluntary organization dedicated to the prevention of trauma and improvement of trauma care. Founded in 1968, its goals are to increase public awareness of trauma and the ATS so that its impact is commonly understood; initiate, promote and/or coordinate (national research) prevention programs and activities aimed at reducing the incidence and severity of trauma; advance trauma care throughout the nation through advocacy for development of comprehensive trauma systems; and assure necessary resources to achieve these goals through member participation and philanthropy. The ATS is a public education/awareness association with projects and operations funded through grants from the private sector, donations, and membership dues. The Society currently has over 2,700 members, which include individuals (e.g., physicians, nurses, emergency medical technicians and paramedics, other allied health professionals, and the general public), institutional members (e.g., trauma centers), and corporations. In addition, the Society has state divisions to encourage participation on the grass-roots level.
