AARC Announces 2001 Videoconference Line-Up
Dallas, TX (Dec. 8, 2000) -- The American Association for Respiratory Care has announced its schedule of videoconferences for 2001, approved for continuing education credit for respiratory therapists and nurses.
The series of conferences, called Professor's Rounds in Respiratory Care, brings convenient education direct to facilities in two ways:
1. The initial showing of the conference is a live presentation sent by satellite direct to your facility.
2. If you aren't able to receive the satellite transmission, use our convenient teleconference option, which allows you to view the taped presentation and talk with the presenter live one month after the initial broadcast.
Programs for 2001 include:
