Tell Us What You Want to Hear in Vegas
Here’s a great idea for how to spend a little of your downtime over the holidays: brainstorm ideas for topics and speakers at next year’s AARC Congress in Las Vegas. The deadline for 2010 RFPs is coming up Jan. 15.

Missing Something from the Congress?
If you lost something at the AARC International Respiratory Congress in San Antonio, please call Crystal Maldonado at the AARC office at 972-243-2272 and report it missing. We have several items from the meeting and would like to return them to their rightful owners.
