RTSO 2018 Summer Airwaves

RTSO’s Summer 2018 Airwaves is out!
This is a quarterly publication that I look forward to reading.

As many of you may know, I learned about RTSO through this publication. I appreciate all the hardwork done by this team! Over the last 8 months I have volunteered with this organization (as a director, lead for social media, and member of the Pulmonary Diagnostic Advocacy Working Group and Inspiration 2019 team). Shawna and her team have done a great job with this latest publication so do make sure to check it out!
