1947–2022 — 75 Years of Helping RTs

It’s hard to believe it, but the AARC is 75 years old! Inhalation therapy has come a long way, and we’re taking time this year to celebrate the advances, accomplishments, and experiences of the last 75 years.

We’ll continue to share historical perspectives and memories here on our 75th Anniversary Page. We encourage you to visit this site often and participate in our anniversary activities.

To kick off the celebration, we’d like to hear from you!

  • What do you think AARC’s biggest milestone has been so far?
  • Which respiratory therapy pioneer would you like to know more about?

Send in your answers using the form on this page and we’ll share the results in February.

In the meantime, check out the Virtual Museum and AARC’s timeline. For a quick trip down memory lane, here’s where Dr. Levine started an inhalation therapy program in 1943:
