GSRC Leadership

The Distinguished Presidents of GSRC

President's Message

I would like to begin by saying Happy 50th Anniversary to the Georgia Society for Respiratory Care! The society for fifty years has had exceptional leadership upholding our mission to Inspire, Educate, Support and Advocate for respiratory health. The current leadership and members will continue to do so by utilizing our EASI approach.

2018 is a year of change! First, CoARC, the Commission on Accreditation for Respiratory Care, will not be accrediting new associate degree respiratory programs beginning January 1, 2018. Also, if an associate degree program loses their accreditation after January 1, 2018 they will not be eligible to regain their accreditation. These are changes to standard 1.01.

We are also proud of our education programs, and offer several continuing education opportunities . Check our calendar for specific dates and locations.

We have gone green over the last few years, and at the last Board of Directors meeting we voted to make much needed updates to our website. We are also going to create a brand new online newsletter for not only news, but ads and a job board too. If you would like to contribute just contact our Executive Office, by email, [email protected] or phone, 404-299-4641.

I am honored to serve as your current president and I am here to help in any way I can. You can reach me at [email protected] or 678-462-6859.

Thank you,

Kiley Hodge, BS, RRT-ACCS
