on Board with Our Latest Drive4COPD Initiative
We hosted a successful webcast on our new “Adopt-a-Company”
Drive4COPD initiative on Wed. afternoon, but if you missed it you can
still learn how to get involved. Folks are adopting their companies right
now, so don’t be left behind!
Speaking of webcasts, you won’t want to miss next Thurs.’s session on Capnography Monitoring for Non-Intubated Patients: Does it Improve Safety? presented by Jonathan Waugh, PhD, RRT, RPFT, FAARC. Attend the live session and earn one FREE CRCE.
by May 20 to Save on Summer Meetings
If you’re planning to head to Vail, CO, this July 17–20 for
the AARC Summer Meetings but have yet to register, you’ll want to
get it done by next Friday, May 20. That’s the final day for earlybird
savings on registration fees not only for the Summer Forum, but for two
great courses on mentoring and ensuring competency that’ll be taking
place just before and after the Forum itself.

The long-running Sputum Bowl will be coming to an end at AARC Congress
