Respiratory Care Week Is Almost Here!

Published 06 October 09 02:24 PM

The time has come to celebrate your profession.

What do scrub tops, chili and the "Cat in the Hat" have in common? All, according to Roger Berg, PhD, RRT-NPS, one of our bloggers for ADVANCE for Respiratory Care and Sleep Medicine, will make up part of the celebration his facility's having for Respiratory Care Week, which is three weeks away on Oct. 25-31.

His staff will receive scrub tops, hold a chili cook-off for the entire hospital (yum) and then cap off the week with a Dr. Seuss-themed Halloween celebration complete with even more good eats. It sounds like a blast, and if you weren't quite the planner Dr. Berg was (or even if you were, and just want to add a few finishing touches), we have a whole list of products that can help you with your own brand of celebration for Respiratory Care Week.

These Respiratory Care Week balloons in the picture are one of our newer products, and really work well for any type of celebration (we have a few different kinds). As a bonus, they're eco-friendly balloons, 100 percent biodegradable, so a few hours of fun won't end up screwing up the environment down the road.

ADVANCE for Respiratory Care and Sleep Medicine also dedicated a top story section to Respiratory Care Week and Sleep Technologist Appreciation Week. They compiled a great list of 10 activities you can do to celebrate Respiratory Care Week, and also announced the winners of the National Respiratory Achievement Awards.

And, as those working in respiratory care and sleep medicine seem to be cropping up everywhere, we even hunted down some fans of our newsmagazine down at the recent Baltimore job fair, hosted by ADVANCE.

Do you have anything planned for National Respiratory Care Week? If so, I hope it involves chili. That sounds like just the ticket on these cooler autumn days.

About Lynn Jusinski

After an internship at a home magazine where she wrote about media rooms and $500,000 pool renovations from the comfort of a teeny, cluttered dorm room, Lynn Jusinski graduated from a small college in Pennsylvania and then moved on to write for two weekly newspapers in suburban Philadelphia. A column she penned for the papers won an award from the Pennsylvania Newspaper Association. In 2007, Lynn moved back to the magazine world, and worked full-time as an associate editor for ADVANCE for Health Information Professionals. Her work on the magazine led to “Rookie of the Year” honors and a second place feature award in the annual Editorial Excellence Awards presented by Merion Publications Inc. In her free time, Lynn is typically stuck in traffic, shopping, reading, constructing poorly made crafts and hanging out in and around her hometown.
