CONGRATULATIONS FLORIDA for a strong finish to Virtual Lobby Week, and thanks to the 738 of you who wrote, called and tweeted Congress regarding the important role of respiratory therapists in healthcare. See the final number of advocates and messages sent below. With over 11,000 RCPs in Florida, we may be able to do even better in the future.

Also keep in mind for next time that letters from supportive family members, friends and co-workers are important, powerful and necessary communications as well. A special thanks to Misty Carlson and Glenn Milano, Florida respiratory therapists who visited the majority of our Florida Congressional representatives on Hill Day in Washington D.C to personally deliver our important message. Thanks again to all.
