The South Carolina Society for Respiratory Care needs your help! We are seeking volunteers to serve as facility ambassadors from every Respiratory Care department in South Carolina.
SCSRC ambassadors serve as a liaison between the SCSRC and their department and hospital. We believe that staying in touch with local representation develops communication and enhances professional development.
Did you know that the SCSRC offers scholarships, gives awards, offers education and social events, and more? Build your resume, network, and grow your career. To become an SCSRC Facility Ambassador for your department and hospital you can apply using our online volunteer form by clicking here or email us at email@example.com .

I attended my first SCSRC BOD Meeting as a committee chair, on April 10, 2015. I had anticipated the event for months with some degree of trepidation and was concerned that I would not understand some fine point of the Roberts Rules of Order (http://www.rulesonline.com/) that govern the Parliamentary format of the meeting.

The Midlands Regional Winter Conference was held at Lexington Medical Center on February 20, 2015. Forty respiratory therapists and respiratory care students braved a cold, 17 degree winter day to attend this educational event. For their attendance, the respiratory therapists received 6 hours of CRCE’s, as well as hearing some valuable information. The vendor hall featured bright displays and representatives from Carolina Diagnostics, Hill-Rom, Phillips/Respironics and Ikaria. Various topics were presented: Cardiopulmonary Rehab for the Tracheostomy and Ventilator Patient, Ebola: What you need to know, Trilogy and Decreasing Readmission Rates, Asthma Disease Management-An Evolving Process, and Spirometry, as well as a passionate presentation titled “What has the AARC/SCSRC done for you lately” from the SCSRC’s own Jakki Grimball. Sponsors for the event included Passy Muir, Inc., SC DHEC, Philips/Respironics , Carolina Diagnostics. A very special “Thank You” goes to the Lexington Medical Center, for allowing us the use of the Lexington Medical Park 1 Auditorium for the event.
The Midlands Regional Board Members are already planning and looking forward to next year’s conference. The 2016 Midlands Regional Winter Conference is set for March 10, 2016, so mark your calendars!
