Ask Congress to Support Respiratory Therapists
The American Association for Respiratory Care is a strong advocate for the respiratory care profession, our respiratory therapist members, and patients who suffer from chronic respiratory disease. You can help support our efforts by reviewing the legislative initiatives below that are most important to the Association and contacting your Members of Congress to request they co-sponsor this legislation. Co-sponsorship of important legislation is critical to moving it through the legislative process and your participation makes a difference.
For 2021, the AARC will focus on two bills we are asking Members of Congress to co-sponsor in the 117th Congress. They are:
CONNECT (Creating Opportunities Now for Necessary and Effective Care Technologies) for Health Act — H.R. 2903 and S.1512
Allied Health Workers Diversity Act — H.R. 3320 and S. 1679
Ask your members of Congress to co-sponsor the CONNECT for Health Act and the Allied Health Workforce Diversity Act to support respiratory therapists!
