About the Chair

Adam Mullaly

Adam Mullaly, BSRT, RRT, AE-C

2000 graduate of the Respiratory Therapy program at Canadore College in North Bay Ontario Canada; completed Bachelors of Science in Respiratory Therapy (BSRT) at PIMA Medical Institute in 2013 and obtained Asthma Educator certification in 2016.

Since graduation I have primarily worked in critical care focused roles ranging from bedside therapist, clinical educator, clinical practice leader and ECMO specialist. I spent 7 years working at the Toronto General Hospital in Toronto, Ontario Canada and then spent 8 years at working at Memorial Hermann Hospital Texas Medical Center in Houston, Texas before transitioning into a COPD Navigator Role at Bryn Mawr Hospital Main Line Health just outside Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 2016.

Currently I am focused on developing and researching COPD patient initiatives that demonstrate Respiratory Therapist value by positively impacting clinical outcomes, improving the transition of care process and optimizing perceived patient quality of life. In this role I have become passionate about the need for improved RT communication, collaboration and engagement in chronic lung disease patient care in both the acute and post-acute care settings.​​
