Thank you generous donors

October 04, 2019

With just over a week to go on our campaign we have raised 50% of funds needed to get the New Orleans! Help us turn that 50% into 100% and change the lives of patients all over the world!! This trip will give our diligent students the opportunity to present their research to the most respected individuals in the industry, which includes, a select few that actually wrote our textbooks! As students we could not ask for a more perfect opportunity to advance in our careers and as future practitioners. 

 

Thank you to all of our donors,

We could not ask for a better support system! 

We could not be more proud to represent Boise State and our Department of Respiratory Care!
