The 41st Anniversary FOCUS/New York Respiratory Care, Sleep Medicine & Pulmonary Function Conference
Welcome to the FOCUS/New York 2020 Respiratory Care, Sleep Medicine & Pulmonary Function Conference taking place on September 25th, 2020 at the beautiful Red Lion Hotel in Albany NY. For this 41st annual conference (we can’t believe it either) we’ve compiled 10 pertinent lectures for Respiratory Therapists, 10 for Sleep Technologists and 10 PFT-specific lectures for Pulmonary Function Technologists all presented by some of the profession’s most esteemed speakers. That’s 30 different lectures to choose from, running in three separate rooms, all in one day !! and all of the topics were chosen to enable attendees to take practical information back to their respective health care settings.
The conference will also feature exhibitors presenting the latest in equipment and services. Drop by their booths to see their products and enter the raffles many of them will be holding. A nice, expanded continental breakfast along with two coffee breaks and a sit-down plated luncheon is also included in everyone’s registration fee of $225. Rooms at the hotel are only $79 for the night (a truly incredible rate with free parking) before and the night of the conference. Share the room with a colleague and it’s half that price; a great opportunity to make a little getaway out of the conference at very little cost. Come in early and perhaps stay a night to enjoy the hotel’s excellent restaurant, bar and perhaps even a little bit of Albany.
Of course, in addition to being a great educational forum, let us not overlook the social aspects of what has become an annual Fall tradition. Old and new colleagues reuniting during Fall foliage season to learn, network and socialize. Remember, Focus conferences are the largest conferences of their kind in the country (after the AARC Congress); larger than any state show in the country. If you’ve never been to a Focus conference, check out this excellent 1-day event in Albany NY where great academia and great value are the driving forces of what has been a fantastic conference for straight 41 years.
