The Mississippi Society for Respiratory Care has been actively working with the AARC to help represent respiratory therapists. In a few weeks, over 100 respiratory therapists and supporters will participate in Hill Day in Washington D.C., speaking with representatives and senators about the respiratory profession and the need for support of patients with respiratory disease.
The MSRC Board of Directors and Officers are asking their members to become active in promoting our profession and the importance of the care we provide. Follow the link to the AARC’s advocacy page and complete the information to send our senators and representatives letters and emails: http://c.aarc.org/advocacy/lobby_week/
Please consider becoming involved in this important endeavor. The process can be done in less than five minutes.
