This year we had another great opportunity to promote COPD awareness and education at Husker Harvest Days, held Sept. 14-16 in Grand Island. We hosted the DRIVE4COPD campaign in our attempt to contribute towards the AARC’s goal of 500,000 screened in 2010. We completed 250 screeners and had that many and more opportunities to educate people about lung disease and the role that respiratory therapists have in the diagnosis and treatment of lung diseases.
The NSRC would like to thank the many volunteers who took time out of their busy schedules to make this event a success: Sheri Trindle, Monica Eder, Rachel Stubbs, Stacy Cabela, Sofronia Jackson, Bill Bonner, Megan Mescher, Stacie Hoeman, Paula Hunke-Davis and Jenny Bush. We’d also like to thank Chris Hamilton for encouraging her respiratory students to participate in community education events: Christin Nott, Alicia Peters and Megan Wiseman.
