Thank you Elan Nattrass for applying to the City of Vancouver for the Vancouver RT Week Proclamation! Amazing work!

You have inspired respiratory therapists across the province to write letters like the heartfelt one below from Jacqueline Turvey to the City of Kamloops. Welll done Jacqueline!

"Dear Mayor Ken Christian,

Please see information attached on Respiratory Therapists as RT Week is Oct 25-31. I have also attached a certificate of recognition that was given to RTs from the city of Vancouver. I am wondering if it is possible to do a similar certificate of recognition for the RTs in Kamloops.

This has been an extremely challenging year for our citizens. Our healthcare teams have been doing amazing work despite the stresses and pressures of caring for our people during this uncertain time. Kamloops has shown its love and support for healthcare workers throughout the year by putting up signs, banging pots, and saying thank you.

These things mean so much, and help to lift us and give us strength.

If you were able to give a certificate of recognition, it would be proudly displayed at RIH. This would be so that as many RTs as possible could see it. It would also be shared digitally with the RT Program at TRU, so that those students could see how the profession they are working so hard to get into makes a difference in people's lives.

Kamloops has the only RT Program in BC, and is extremely well recognized as one of the top RT Programs in Canada.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Warm regards,

JACQUELINE TURVEY RRT, CRE, CTE"
