AARC LIVE! Virtual Learning Event — Leading Beyond Covid-19.

AARC LIVE!

Welcome to AARC LIVE! Join us July 2020 as respiratory therapists come together to experience learning in a virtual environment.

COVID-19 set a new standard for delivering patient care and collaborating with colleagues worldwide. Using this experience as a foundation, AARC LIVE! 2020 will help respiratory therapists learn together to lead the profession beyond COVID-19.

AARC LIVE! includes four learning tracks spread across four days—one track per day. Tracks range from management, education, and adult acute care topics, along with a special Leading Perspectives bonus track.
