SWCTA needs your support in purchasing this piece of equipment for students to simulate medical situations they will experience

My medical program is for respiratory therapy students in high school who want to enter the field in post secondary education. SWCTA is a new career and technical academy in Las Vegas. The goal of the program is to give students a solid foundation in medical classes for 4 years with the last two years in Respiratory Therapy classes plus the core classes needed for graduation. Our students have some of the highest test scores in the district as well as they are driven to pursue higher education due to the focus of our academy. Unfortunately, Las Vegas has been hit and is still suffering greatly from the recession and has the highest foreclosure rate in the nation. That has cause our funding to be cut and essential supplies needed for success in these programs put on hold. We desparately need to purchase a ventilator to support the curriculum and instruction for the program. Please support the RT program and allow the students to simulate instruction with equipment that industry uses. Students need real hands on experiences with authentic equipment to learn what the field of RT is about so they can pursue medical careers at the post secondary level.
