AARC Social Media Advocacy Toolkit

Social media is a great way to strengthen public awareness about telehealth and other issues important to advancing respiratory care and the profession.

Telehealth

Join the AARC in spreading the word about RTs. Ask Congress to cosponsor H.R. 4932 and S.2741, the Creating Opportunities Now for New and Effective Care Technologies for Health Act (the CONNECT Act). Let your voice be heard!

Use and share these social media resources to promote your lobby efforts. Looking for a hashtag? Use #HR4932 #S2741, #telehealth and #aarclobby in your social media posts to help unify our messages.
