CDC: Severe Pulmonary Disease Associated with Using E-Cigarette Products

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is providing: 1) background information on the forms of e-cigarette products, 2) information on the multi-state outbreak of severe pulmonary disease associated with using e-cigarette products (devices, liquids, refill pods, and cartridges), and 3) clinical features of patients with severe pulmonary disease. This health advisory also provides recommendations for clinicians, public health officials, and the public based on currently available information.

   Summer Grassroots Campaign!

Visit the AARC Advocacy Map to see how many RRT's are involved across the United States! 
Get involved today! This campaign is seeking to:  
  1. ASK - Representatives in the House to become Co-Sponsors of HR 2508 (the BREATHE Act).
  2. THANK - Representatives in the House who are already Co-Sponsors of HR 2508 (yes, this is new and you don't have to do any more than put your address in as usual)!!
  3. TARGET and ASK - Fourteen (14) Senators in thirteen (13) states who have expressed interest in creating a companion bill to HR 2508 OR who are key Senators on Finance Committee OR the Telehealth Working Group Members, to include the language of HR 2508 into the reintroduction of the CONNECT for Health Act (it was introduced in both chambers last session and we expect it to occur again). 

Congratulations to all GSRC 2019 Spring Graduates!
