Respiratory Care Service Learning

Great Service Learning projects are happening this semester. Here is one for Health Sciences:

The Respiratory Care Program participated in the Fight for Air Climb through the American Lung Association. This event took place on Saturday, February 17, 2018 at the Fifth Third Bank Center in downtown Nashville. This building has 29 flights of stairs the climbers have to climb. This is a timed event. The students all volunteered in a variety of capacities from working the registration table, providing hydration and nutrients to the climbers, and being the climbers biggest cheerleaders all the way to the finish line. One of the top climbers suffers from a severe lung disease and he participates every year to bring awareness to lung health. The fastest climb time was 4:00 minutes by a firefighter with all of his gear.
