The Florida Society for Respiratory Care (FSRC) will continue to be the leading professional association for Respiratory Care in Florida. The FSRC will encourage and promote professional excellence, advance the science and practice of Respiratory Care, and serves as an advocate for patients, their families, the public, the profession, and the Respiratory Therapist.

The AARC has opened its Disaster Relief Fund for members affected by hurricane Idalia in Florida.

AARC members living in officially declared disaster areas in these states may apply for a grant of up to $1,000, either online or by mail using the downloadable application form.

We ask that if you know of a fellow member who has been affected, please relay this message to them, as they may not have access to the internet. 

The fund is all about AARC members helping members.
