The AARC supports the globalization of respiratory care every year through a program that brings health care professionals from abroad to our shores to tour respiratory care facilities in two cities before attending the International Respiratory Convention & Exhibition.
The AARC is proud to announce its 2013 class of International Fellows and the cities that will be hosting them this fall:
Lysbeth Roldan, RT, Colombia—Baltimore, MD, and Rochester, MN
Mohamad El-Khatib, MD, PhD, FAARC, Lebanon—Portland, OR, and Ogden, UT
Daisuke Tsukahara, RN, Japan—Kailua, HI, and Boise, ID
Jithin K Sree, BSc RT, MSc RT, India—Charlottesville, VA, and Winston-Salem, NC
Mohammed Herrag, MD, Morocco—Emporia, KS, and Minneapolis, MN
Ana Cristina Okada, PT, Brazil—Philadelphia, PA, and Cincinnati, OH
Please join us in congratulating these outstanding international colleagues on their fellowships. We would also like to thank the AARC members in these cities who have volunteered to organize the facility visits that will make their trips to the U.S. both educational and memorable.
