The World Needs More – More RTs

We are celebrating the specialized skills of respiratory therapists and spotlighting the vital role you play every day. Together, we continue to overcome the challenges of the COVID-19 crisis, but the need for more respiratory therapists will keep rising for years to come. Powerful stories from respiratory therapists, physicians, patients and others will inspire more people to join the profession, fulfilling the demand for high-quality respiratory care for all who need it now and in the future.
