Respiratory Care Week in Progress
This annual event recognizes the respiratory care profession and promotes awareness of lung health issues, according to Christopher Trotter, assistant professor at the Marshall/St. Mary's cooperative School of Respiratory Care.
"Respiratory care professionals from around the world come together in their communities to celebrate, motivate, educate, inspire and learn more about our field," Trotter said. "We do this by hosting activities to honor and reward respiratory therapists for their contributions."
This year, the School of Respiratory Care is hosting a picnic and wiffleball tournament for all respiratory care students and staff. The picnic will begin at noon, Wednesday, Oct. 23, at Coonskin Park in the Gorman Shelter in Charleston, W.Va., with the wiffleball tournament and other activities to follow.
"Through these fun activities, students can create a positive and enjoyable connection to their field," Trotter said. "It also allows students the opportunity to network and build relationships with potential employers."
"We are very proud of the accomplishments of our respiratory care staff and students," said Dr. Michael Prewitt, dean of the College of Health Professions. "With initiatives such as these, our students will become actively involved in their field and hopefully take roles in related organizations such as the West Virginia Society for Respiratory Care or the American Association for Respiratory Care."
