The AARC has just formed new Roundtables on International Medical Missions and Geriatrics.

Lisa Trujillo, MS, RRT, an educator at Weber State University in Ogden, UT, who has been on a number of medical missions to China and Africa, will lead the medical missions group. Participants will discuss the importance of these missions and share their own experiences traveling around the world to deliver respiratory care and educate physicians and nurses about our profession.

The geriatrics group will be led by Mary Hart, BS, RRT, AE- C, from the Martha Foster Lung Care Center at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, TX. Discussions will focus on any and all issues related to caring for older people with lung conditions.

All of the AARC’s Roundtables are open to any AARC member at no extra charge. And now they are all housed on the Association’s new social media site, AARConnect. To join:

  • Pull down on Directory > All Communities
  • From there, simply click on the name of the Roundtable you would like to join, then click on Join Community.
  • You’ll also be prompted to choose your email preference. You can get them in Real Time, Daily Digest, or choose No Emails so that you can come to the site at your leisure and read what has been posted.
