Shake off the career blues at the MSRC Spring Conference!

No matter what area you work in, we have presentations for you!  From intensive care to neonatal/pediatrics to chronic disease management, MSRC is bringing you the latest information delivered by experts from all over Michigan and around the country.  This year's pre-conference event is an interactive workshop covering all aspects of ventilator-associated events (VAEs), featuring 2018 AARC Specialty Practitioner of the Year Kim Bennion!  We also have two outstanding keynote presenters in AARC Past President Brian Walsh and legendary instructor Al Moss, bringing their perspectives on where respiratory care has been, where we are, and what the future holds.  Students, don't miss a series of presentations focused on YOUR needs as you transition from learner to master and get your career off the ground.
We're returning to one of our most popular venues, the Radisson Plaza Hotel at Kalamazoo Center!  Located right next to Kalamazoo's Entertainment District, the Radisson is within walking distance to a variety of attractions, restaurants, and brewpubs.  We've negotiated special rates starting at $135/night (double), but you MUST register BEFORE March 12 (or before they sell out!) to take advantage!
