The Arkansas Society of Respiratory Care was established in 1962. Today there are over 500 members who have discovered the benefit of the professional society. The Arkansas Society of Respiratory Care is a chartered affiliate of the American Association for Respiratory Care.


To recognize National Respiratory Care Week the Respiratory Therapy Program at National Park College started, in 2015, a 5K cystic fibrosis 5k walk.  This year’s walk also included a costume contest and was held on Saturday October 31, 2016. We had about 70 walkers, many in costume and the weather was delightful. All funds raised were sent to the Little Rock office of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The freshman class were the ‘wheezy bees’ and the second year class were the ‘1980 Rock Stars’.
