Along with the AARC the RCSW is supporting multiple legislative initiatives that increase the visibility of respiratory therapists and highlight their skills and expertise in patient care and need your help!
You, your family and friends can help support our efforts by reviewing the legislative initiatives that are most important to the Association and sending messages to your Members of Congress. Use this Link Provided to Get started:
