Mourning the Loss of a Dear Friend

This morning, we are mourning the loss of Dr Philip Stuart Ball Fuller. He was the Bob Bageant Award Recipient in 1989, 1993 & 1994. He also served as the medical director for the VSRC in the 1980-90’s. Attached is his obituary and a photo of Dr Fuller at the Symposium by the Sea in 1991 with Dr Forrest Bird. Dr Fuller was instrumental in advocating for our profession, and in 1990 Virginia passed legislation for mandatory certification of respiratory therapists, which led the way to licensure for RTs. Our thoughts are with Dr Fuller’s family at this time.…/DrPhilip-Fuller.
