    Good afternoon, Delegates. I wanted to make sure that you all received communication that the AARC has opened its Disaster Relief Fund for our members in Iowa and Tennessee. If you know of AARC members in either of these states that may be affected by the recent tornadoes, please share the information below with them. Please note that you can also provide an individual donation to the fund as stated below if you would like as well. Our thoughts and prayers go out to our colleagues in Iowa and Tennessee as they work towards clean up and healing.
    The AARC has opened its Disaster Relief Fund for members affected by the recent tornadoes in Iowa and Tennessee. AARC members living in officially declared disaster areas in this state may apply for a grant of up to $1,000, either online or by mail using our downloadable application form below.

    The fund is all about AARC members helping members.
    If you would like to contribute to the AARC’s Disaster Relief Fund, donate online.

  • AARC Asks That RTs Be Added to Heroes Fund Susan Parsons, MBA, RRT April 15, 2020

    Today the AARC sent a letter to House and Senate Congressional leaders urging them to specifically recognize respiratory therapists as essential health care providers for the lifesaving care they are delivering to patients with COVID-19 in any legislative provision that authorizes hazard pay for essential workers, like the Heroes Fund proposal. We also reminded them we sent a letter earlier asking that RTs be included as telehealth practitioners in any additional stimulus package being developed.

  • Introducing the TSRC Students Page Susan Parsons, MBA, RRT April 19, 2019

    We have added a new section to the TSRC website, the Students page! We hope that RT students throughout Tennessee will be inspired by the new section, and support it by sending content. Respiratory Care program directors in Tennessee are encouraged to send news and articles about projects their students are undertaking or have completed.

    To kickoff the new section, Kylie Marshall has provided a brief article, and a video of her trip to the 2018 AARC Congress and House of Delegates. The article and video can be seen here: https://tntsrc.org/students/.

    Thank you Kylie, for helping to get the Students page going.
