As Thanksgiving approaches, the AARC takes a moment to extend heartfelt gratitude to our heroes of healthcare: respiratory therapists. In this season of thankfulness, we recognize and appreciate the tireless dedication, compassion, and expertise that Rt’s bring to their crucial roles in patient care.

Your commitment to improving patient outcomes, providing respiratory support, and offering comfort to individuals and families facing challenging health circumstances is truly commendable.

This Thanksgiving, we want to express our profound appreciation for your unwavering commitment across the country. Your professionalism, expertise, and compassion embody the spirit of caregiving that makes a significant difference in the lives of countless individuals.

The AARC wishes all respiratory therapists a joyful and fulfilling Thanksgiving celebration. May this holiday be a moment of rest, joy, and connection with loved ones, allowing you to recharge and return with renewed dedication to vital work.

Please note that our headquarters will be closing early on November 22nd and will remain closed on November 23rd and 24th in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday. We appreciate your understanding and wish everyone a safe and enjoyable holiday season.

As an association committed to supporting healthcare professionals, we extend our deepest gratitude to respiratory therapists everywhere and hope this Thanksgiving brings them the joy and appreciation they truly deserve.
