The second of two FOCUS Fall 2017 Conferences takes place on October 18th, 2017 at the Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel in Poughkeepsie NY. This is a one-day “marathon” conference in its 36th consecutive year. RT's and Sleep Technologists can obtain 10 credits in their respective disciplines in one day while enjoying some of the nation's finest and most famous speakers, continental breakfast, a seated luncheon, snack breaks, a busy exhibit hall and door prizes. Two lectures rooms will run concurrently; one with lectures geared to RTs and one geared to Sleep Technologists. Each may attend each other’s lectures since all lectures will be approved for both Respiratory Therapy credits (AARC) and Sleep credits (NBRC). Rooms at the Poughkeepsie Grand Hotel will be only $99 per night and are available the night before the conference and the night of the conference. Specific information on the topics and speakers, along with the ability to register for the conference, will be available April 1st, 2017. The price for this conference will once again be $195.
