Rescheduled East TN Chapter September Meeting

We have decided to reschedule todays meeting to Wednesday of next week. The meeting will now be held on September 26th @ 5;30 pm in the Cherokee room at Indian Path Medical Center. The agenda is still the same, there will be 1 (face to face) CEU offered. The topic is pre-analytical blood gas errors. The cost of the CEU is still $10, however we would like to ask for another form of payment. If you bring a donated item for the silent auction in November, the item will be considered payment for the CEU. Also, if you bring an item worth $10-$20 it will be considered payment for the September CEU and payment for the October CEU. Donated items are encouraged over cash and credit/debit is also accepted.

The meeting will be sponsored by Ballad Health Hospice. Bradens BBQ will be served, so if you plan to attend please contact me in some fashion to allow for a head count on food.

We will also be discussing the upcoming 5k held on October 20th to kick off Respiratory Care Week!

We look forward to seeing you all next week. Sorry for any inconvenience!

We will also be finalizing details for the 5K run during RT week in October.

Reminder/Update August 1st Chapter Meeting

I’d like to remind everyone of our meeting on Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. at Indian Path Medical Center. There is one minor, yet important change. The meeting will now be held in the Tenasi room rather than the Cherokee room as previously advertised. One CEU is being offered, the topic is the annual mandatory safety/ethics session. The charge is $10 and free for students. Students are encouraged to attend and everyone bring a friend!

August 1st East TN Chapter Meeting

We are planning to have another chapter meeting on Wednesday August 1st @ 5:30pm in the Cherokee Room at Indian Path Medical Center. We will be offering 1 CEU during this meeting. The CEU offered will be the required Safety/Ethics for every year. After the speaker is finished, I would like to discuss a few things going on at the chapter level, then dismiss. Things that will be discussed include: Benefits for TSRC membership and activity, Volunteers needed to drive golf carts during the fall race at BMS August 16th and 17th, brainstorming ideas for a 5K we are hosting Sat. Oct. 27th (sponsors, T shirts, Trophies, Donations, EMS, Timing devices). We are also trying to put together a meet and greet for our area RT’s within our chapter limits, to help recruit for more activity, during RT week 2018. A charge of $10 for the CEU, debut/credit will be accepted! Students are free of charge. Thanks, hope to see you all there!
