Proposals: Deadline Extended to Jan. 11
We know everyone’s busy these days, so we’re giving you all
a little more time to submit your proposals for topics and speakers at
AARC Congress 2012, coming up next Nov. 10–13 in New Orleans. Take
a few moments to consider what you’d like to hear about when we
hit the Crescent City next fall, then use our Easy Street submission portal
to weigh in with your suggestions by Jan. 11.
Allied Health Report
A summary of a workshop on the allied health workforce and health reform
is now available from the Institute of Medicine. AARC was represented
at the conference that examined allied health and health care access,
effectiveness, and quality.
Deals Still Available on AARC T-shirts
We’ll be conducting our year-end inventory soon, and in
order to clear the shelves before that happens, we’ve slashed prices
on our existing stock of AARC short-sleeved t-shirts—just $2.99
each for AARC members! So click on the link now and take advantage of
this great opportunity to stock up on shirts that show off your pride
in profession! Hurry, though! These deals only last until existing stock
the “Gift” of Knowledge!
Here’s a great “gift” idea for your colleagues in medicine,
nursing, pharmacy and other specialties—the AARC’s new guide
to aerosol delivery for other health care professionals. The book is available
free of charge to any health care professional who would like to download
it from the AARC website. Or get your department to download the guide
and print copies to distribute to members of the health care team.
Offers Targeted Information, Networking Opportunities
Last week in News Now we encouraged everyone to consider joining a Specialty
Section. But did you know the AARC has 11 additional groups you can join
as well? Called “Roundtables,” they are more informal than
a section, but still offer the chance to network with like-minded colleagues
via dedicated discussion lists on AARConnect.
What’s more, they are all available at no extra charge to AARC members.
So check out the list (be sure to scroll down past the list of sections
to “Roundtables) and then sign up for one or more today.
