AARC Executive Office Plays Host to Taiwanese Exchange Students
August 16, 2012
The AARC Executive Office received a special visit last week from three Taiwanese RT students who are here in the U.S. through an exchange program between their university and an RT program in Fort Worth, TX.
Wu Mei-Jung, Huang Hui-Fang, and Chiou Jing-Ru are spending three weeks at Tarrant County College thanks to a sister school relationship between the U.S. college and China Medical University (CMU).
“This is the third year in a row that we have accepted students from CMU for a three week visit to our school,” explains John Hiser, MEd, RRT, FAARC, program director at Tarrant County. “Their instructor is Chia Chen Chu, MS, SCRT, FAARC, who is the Governor for Taiwan for the International Council for Respiratory Care, a past International Fellow, and recipient of the Koga Medal.”
The trip over to Dallas to visit our offices came at the request of Chia Chen Chu, who wanted the students to see the Association headquarters in action. “He is very familiar with what the AARC does and he specifically requests that the students get a tour of the AARC Executive Office so that his students can understand what the AARC does,” says Hiser. “He is grooming future leaders of the profession in Taiwan.”
