In the community

A number of VCU Respiratory Care Services staff members are active in professional organizations and patient support groups. In these roles, they teach, advocate for patients with pulmonary disease, promote smoking cessation and generally work to advance patient care and the practice of respiratory therapy.

Our staff members are active fundraisers and participants in ALAV’s Asthma Walk, the American Heart Association’s Heart Walk and the CF Foundation Walk. In addition, the department has representatives with leadership responsibilities in the Virginia Society for Respiratory Care, which supports patient care and professional legislative issues, public awareness, and patient and clean air advocacy.
