AARC Virtual Lobby Week starts March 21

AARC Virtual Lobby Week starts March 21

Respiratory therapists are going to Washington, D.C. to meet with members of Congress to lobby for support of HR 2619 , the Medicare Respiratory Therapist Access Act, during Virtual Lobby Week March 21 through April 1, 2014.

You can help these DC-bound respiratory therapists, joined by patient advocates and local area RT students in their efforts, by contacting your own members of Congress just before they arrive in D.C.

The AARC background information sheet explains why it's important for HR2619 to pass. Please do your part and help our state’s representatives that will be traveling to D.C. by contacting your congressman in support of the bill via the AARC's Virtual Lobby Week page.

The AARC will be sponsoring an hour-long "Hill Day" webcast on Tuesday, March 25, at 1 p.m CDT.
