Please join us for a special webcast which will be provided by the AARC Diagnostics Specialty Section.

This discussion will focus on the newer studies and guidance documents related to race and pulmonary function reference values, and consider recommendations for future use of reference equations. Our presenter will review why new guidance regarding race is being recommended, and how adopting race-neutral PFT reference equations and pattern recognition of spirometry can help reduce disparities in healthcare.
