While RT Week 2017 was about to get underway in Indiana this year, the Designated Events committee for the ISRC worked with local merchandise partners to provide RT Week gift purchase options for state’s RT departments to celebrate the week. Purchases helped the ISRC by allowing donations from these sales to support fun activities like scholarship awards. This year, October 22-28th we celebrated National RT week as recognized by the AARC.
Chapter 7 was most active in Seymour and Bedford Indiana where RT’s achieved mayoral Proclamation recognition during the week. Thanks to all who promoted RT Week 2017; stories abound with RT pride and joy. Thanks to all who supported the merchandise sales to support the ISRC and recognize Respiratory Therapists in their communities. Write to the editor or an ISRC volunteer to let us know of how you celebrated RT Week 2017 so we can follow up for 2018 promotions.
