RC Week 2017

AARC members worldwide will come together to celebrate their profession through events and activities for National Respiratory Care Week (RC Week), Oct. 23 – 29, 2022. These events help educate their community and colleagues about what they do and the vital value respiratory therapists deliver each day to patients.

The role of a respiratory therapist is to restore and improve lung health to patients. RC Week is the time for these individuals to tell their story and educate the community. AARC members continually plan a variety of events and activities, such as health fairs, to promote respiratory care.
