Plan Ahead to Celebrate Respiratory Care Week
Oct. 22–28, 2017
Join with the AARC to celebrate this annual event that recognizes the respiratory care profession and raises awareness for improving lung health around the world.
No matter where you work in respiratory care, whether it’s neonatal-pediatrics, geriatrics, emergency care, pulmonary rehabilitation, acute care, home care, education, sleep or another specialty, your role as a respiratory therapist is to restore and improve lung heath to patient’s lives. RC Week is the time to tell your story and educate the community.
