Are You Celebrating RC Week? Here’s Some Tips

 Published: August 19, 2020

By: Addie Schiefer



Respiratory Care Week is the one week out of the year where the attention is solely focused on respiratory therapists! This year respiratory therapists have been on the front lines more than usual. COVID-19 has forced RTs into new territory and into the media.

So many RTs have worked countless hours away from their loved ones, risked their personal health and the health of their families, traveled across the United States to assist in COVID-19 surge cities, and so much more. Some RTs have even lost their own lives in the fight to keep others healthy. This year, more than ever, is the perfect time to go all out and really celebrate our RT teams.
