According to a citation in the 2020 report for the Global Initiative for Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD), stable COPD can be treated with a minimally invasive endobronchial valve (EBV) option. There are a few centers that place these as a bronchoscopic interventional therapy and these EBV’s meet criteria as Evidence A.
The Program theme will be “Wicked Good RT’s—Innovate, Inspire, Heal” and we are embracing it. We expect fun with the selected theme, so get ready to register for fun in October. It’s Halloween time, so be prepared for witches and wicked goodness getting a lot of play, especially when participants do their part on October 1 and 2.
Franciscan Health Carmel will seek any RT volunteer to help with the Carmel Marathon on April 4, 2020.
