Have you ever wished there was a book that you could share with people to help them understand what it is we do as respiratory therapists? A book that brings awareness to our profession? Well, I have a book coming out soon, hopefully by the first of October. The book is called "I AM A RESPIRATORY THERAPIST" subtitle "That's' Nice...What's That." If you want to be made aware of when this book is released please sign up for my email list and I'll let you know (And no, I won't bombard you with endless emails that annoy you)
Please support your Louisiana neighbor in this election! Vote for Raymond Pisani for AARC Director At Large!!

The FOCUS Conference takes place in Memphis TN this coming September 20 & 21, 2019. We choose to return to Memphis because we loved the Guesthouse at Graceland Hotel and everything Elvis BUT hundreds of our attendees and the entire Focus crew ALSO enjoyed the heck out of Beale St. in downtown Memphis. Odds are, Beale Street is on your bucket list because it' Tennessee’s most visited attraction, and, according to USA TODAY, it's America’s most iconic street - even more fun and famous than the French Quarter in New Orleans. With music streaming from every open door, tributes to music legends along its cobblestone walkways and reminders of the city's rich heritage everywhere you look, it's no wonder Beale Street attracts millions of visitors every year. To help you get the full Beale Street experience, check out this great website Focus found. It breaks things down into five unique ways for you to enjoy the strip where rock, soul and neon collide. Here's the link: www.memphistravel.com. We loved it and so will you. See you at the 25th Anniversary FOCUS conference this September. Check it out and register at www.Foocus.com and spread the word !!

Great opportunity!
The R&D CACHEGRIP Team would like to know yr comment and opinion on: www.facebook.com/Cachegrip-1854962898167005 or www.clever-action.com The CACHEGRIP is a SELF-PORTABLE and automatic medical nebulizer, composed by a SCARF, where is introduced a malleable and removable NEBULIZING MASK, which, starting from a flat position, WHEN ADJUSTED TO THE FACE, FORMS A BREATHING AND NEBULIZING CHAMBER. Into this mask are incorporated, a special NEBULIZER/TRANSDUCER, a disposable RESERVOIR with therapeutic solution (supplied exclusively by pharmaceutical companies) and ELETRICAL AND ELETRONICS DEVICES TO OPERATE AND TO PROGRAM, TO REGULATE AND TO CONTROL IT, REMOTELY. It works as AEROSOL ADMINISTRATOR and DELIVER DEVICE of therapeutic solutions to treat and prevent respiratory and allergic diseases, keeping THE PATIENT PERMANENTLY RELIEVED OF AGGRESSIVE SYMPTOMATOLOGY, WITHOUT ANY NEED OF INTERVENTION, and ISOLATION OR CHANGE HIS DAILY LIFE. Your support for CACHEGRIP campaign is fundamental to generate a "DEMAND FORCE " to induce PHARMACEUTICAL / BIGPHARMAS to join us for it diffusion.
