In addition, the firm helps the PSRC leadership plan strategies for introducing legislation and influencing regulatory activities on reimbursement issues, research projects, consumer protection, smoking laws -- anything affecting the provision of quality respiratory care.
The PSRC represents respiratory therapists to the media, other organizations, the general public, and the health care industry. We frequently communicate with the PA State Board of Medicine, the State Board of Osteopathic Medicine, the Hospital Association of Pennsylvania, and many more professional associations around the state.
PSRC Special Events
Since 2006 when the PSRC began putting the FUN back into our association by holding some special events like the PSRC Day @ Camel Beach Waterpark and a PSRC Night at the Philadelphia Phillies game. These "members only" events allowed our members to bring their families and friends for a day/night of fun...at a discounted rate! Since that time, we've continued offering these events and continue to offer discounted tickets to PSRC Nights at the Flyers hockey games; discounted tickets to Hersheypark, discounted tickets to several theater events, and more!
