Nominate a COVID Hero for a New Award

While our state has been managing well compared to others, COVID remains a serious threat.  You have all sacrificed greatly to care for your patients and I want you to know that the CTSRC officers and directors appreciate it.  To recognize this, we are introducing new awards this year specifically for our COVID heroes.  While you are all heroes in my book, we know that there are those out there who went above and beyond to support their patients, co-workers and their customers.  The COVID hero awards are in addition to the John and Louise Julius Outstanding Practitioner Award and Robert O’Neil Outstanding Vendor Award that CTSRC gives annually.  The COVID hero awards will recognize a Respiratory Therapist and a vendor who, during this crisis, went above and beyond to care for and support our patients, their co-workers and customers.  Please consider nominating someone for these awards. The nomination forms and the criteria can be found under the recognition tabs.  The deadline for submitting nominations is August 1, 2020.

President, CTSRC

Super Symposium Postponed Until Sept 14 and 15, 2021

Due to concerns related to the spread of the COVID-19 virus and the restrictions as the state continues to re-open, the CTSRC has made the very difficult decision to cancel the conference for 2020.  The CTSRC Super Symposium has been RESCHEDULED for September 14th  & 15th,  2021.

This was not an easy decision for us to make but we felt that it was in the best interest of not only the attendees but the patients that they serve.  We appreciate your understanding in this unusual circumstance.  Thank you for supporting your state society and we hope to see you all September.

For those participants who have registered on-line or by mail, a refund or credit toward the September conference will be issued in the coming weeks.
