Happy Respiratory Care Week Everyone !

It seems like only yesterday that then President Ronald Reagan, recognized our profession with "National Respiratory Therapy Week" some 40 years ago....A week that helped me start my career as a respiratory therapists. Since that time many things have changed but what remains constant throughout the years is the compassion dedication and professionalism that has endured through adversity and the dynamics of an ever-changing health care system. Strength, integrity, compassion, dedication and perseverance are just a few of the attributes that can be bestowed upon such a dedicated group of health care professionals, Respiratory Therapists.

As we celebrate our week remain proud of your accomplishments as a profession, who you are in the interdisciplinary health care system and for all you do for societal health and patient care.
You have truly earned your seat at the table,

You Make a difference!

On Saturday, June 15, 2019 The Youngstown State University Respiratory Care students, as volunteers for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, will be hosting a golf outing fundraiser to benefit the foundation’s Annual Youngstown Great Strides Walk-A-Thon. The golf outing fundraiser is taking place at Bedford Trails Golf Course in Coitsville, Ohio and the students are donating proceeds to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is proud to report that ninety cents of every dollar raised goes toward research to cure this disease that affects more than 30,000 children and adults in the United States. In fact, the CF Foundation has been cited as the "top charity in the health-research category” by Smart Money magazine. Gene therapy research and the development and approval of new drugs are the results of your generous contribution. With your help, we are just footsteps away from a cure.
