For all Students who are currently enrolled in a CT School of Respiratory Therapy or 2019 CT Respiratory Therapy graduates the CTSRC has an exciting opportunity for you!

Students at HOD Mtg

This Nov 9-12, 2019 the AARC is hosting its International Congress Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana. The CTSRC and the AARC House of Delegates would like to invite you to a unique opportunity to participate and experience the inner workings of your professional organization by attending the House of Delegates Meeting on Nov 7 and 8, 2019 before the International Congress. We are hoping to ignite a spark that becomes a lifelong passion for the AARC and the profession of Respiratory Care.

The CTSRC is offering a special grant to help provide financial assistance for this trip. Click HERE for the CTSRC Grant Application. The grant application is due on July 1, 2019. Once selected, students will still need to complete an additional application to the AARC Student Mentoring Application as a Sponsored Student.

The House of Delegates is comprised of elected representatives from all 50 states and Puerto Rico. They are an advisory group to the AARC. What have other students, who have participated in the experience said?  “This experience has been great! I learned so much about what goes on ‘behind the scenes’.  This has sparked an interested in the future for me.” “This was a wonderful experience. I am extremely thankful for the opportunity. It is good to know that voices and concerns are addressed.” “I ABSOLUTELY enjoyed my time here. I learned so much today. One day I would like to become a delegate, so I can make a difference with this profession.”
