AARC Virtual Lobby Campaign Reboot Social Media Toolkit

Social media is a great way to strengthen public awareness about telehealth and other issues important to advancing respiratory care and the profession.

Join the AARC in spreading the word about RTs during our Virtual Lobby Campaign Reboot. Ask House members to cosponsor H.R. 2508, the Better Respiration through Expanding Access to Tele-Health Act (the BREATHE Act) and Senators to introduce companion legislation. Let your voice be heard!

On Monday, May 20th we will be asking advocates to send messages primarily through Twitter. Please note you must have an active Twitter account to do this. Our goal is to have a storm of tweets to Congressional leaders that day so RT voices are heard loud and clear. Help us get our message out about HR 2508 The Better Respiration through Expanding Access to TeleHEalth Act also known as the BREATHE Act.
