Western Respiratory Therapy students win quiz bowl competition

Three students from Western’s Respiratory Therapist program won a quiz bowl competition at the North Regional Respiratory Care Conference (NRRCC) last month in Rochester, Minn.

Representing Western was Ashley Lex, of Cottage Grove, and Eddie Roemer and Amanda Smullen-Johnston, of La Crosse. The team won the “Sputum Bowl,” a quiz competition involving gas laws, math formulas, and evidence-based therapies. The winning team has the opportunity to compete at the national convention in Las Vegas, Nev.

Great job, everyone!
