for Excellence in Education

“To truly have a meaningful life, I believe we should all seek to help others. Education, better yet health care education, has allowed me the opportunity for the past 20 years to have a positive exponential impact through my students to be the greater good. I love what I do and I am blessed to have found my why!” – Dr. Tammy Kurszewski, DHSc, RRT-ACCS.

for Excellence in Leadership

I am so humbled by receiving the 2020 TSRC Leadership Practitioner of the year. More than anything I am filled with gratitude for my fellow Respiratory Therapists. Those who took time to educate and mentor me early in my career; those who daily work alongside me caring for many of our most vulnerable patients; those who allow me to serve them as a leader and return a small portion of the support and mentorship I have been so fortunate to receive. When I think about where our profession will lead us all in the coming years, I am beyond excited by the challenges and opportunities before us. The future is in our hands, and I can’t wait to continue working with my fellow Respiratory Therapists on shaping our tomorrow.
