Looking back on a whirlwind marathon of a week, I am reminded of just how blessed I am to be a part of such an excellent organization as the South Carolina Society for Respiratory Care. We started on Tuesday with two pre-conference workshops; these were led by speakers that are outstanding in what they do. I would like to extend my sincere thanks to Garry Kauffmann, Terry Volsko and David Wheeler on making these available for the attendees and for the excellent presentations.
Next was the inaugural poster presentation session; this was an impressive display of hard work, talent, knowledge; I could go on and on. This session was hosted by David Wheeler, Terry Volsko and Doug Laher, who all did excellent jobs in opening each presentation and keeping everything moving along. The wine and cheese reception was sponsored by WestMed; a big thank you to our WestMed friends for doing this for us!!! (more…)

Your vote will help to shape our future! (more…)
