The award is presented at the Union World Conference on Lung Health and consists of a full fellowship to attend the conference (including full delegate badge, travel, accommodation and per diem), US$ 2,000 and a certificate. The 2017 award will be presented at the 48th Union World Conference on Lung Health, 11-14 October 2017 Guadalajara, Mexico.
