Learn more about the award
The award commemorates a vital member of the health care team that empowers patients to breathe easy: the respiratory therapist. This consummate professional appreciates the ‘individual’ instead of the ‘patient’ and is dedicated to the principal that every breath matters. Nominations come from facilities across the continuum of care where registered respiratory therapists are actively engaged as a champion of patient and family-centered care.

The National Respiratory Patient Advocacy Award program is made possible through the support of the FACES Foundation, the AARC Respiratory Patient Advocacy Summit and its sponsors.
