Hudiburg Buick-GMC is joining with students in Rose State College’s Respiratory Therapy program to help smokers see the positive impact of quitting, in honor of National Respiratory Care Week.
On Wednesday, October 24, from 11:00 am—1:00 pm, Hudiburg will park a brand new truck between the Fine Arts building and the Wellness Center on the Rose State College Campus in Midwest City.
Why? Because the students want to emphasize the fact if someone does not buy cigarettes for a 5-year period, they can afford to purchase the truck.
Rose State College Respiratory Care Practitioner students practice with one of the college’s health science robots. On Wednesday, Oct. 24, the students will provide tests and smoking cessation materials on campus for National Respiratory Health Care Week.
Respiratory therapy students from Rose State will also conduct Pulmonary Function Tests on site and providing smoking cessation materials for those interested.
Respiratory Care Practitioners (RCPs) are specially trained and licensed respiratory health care professionals assisting physicians in the diagnosis, treatment and management of respiratory diseases. RCPs provide care in hospitals, outpatient centers, physicians’ offices, skilled nursing facilities, and patients’ homes. Rose State College offers an Associate of Applied Science degree in the profession.
For more information about the event, or about Rose State College’s Respiratory Health Care education opportunities, please call 405-733-7571.
