Kylie Chubb, a respiratory care major at Indiana University of Pennsylvania from Lewisberry, is the IUP Respiratory Care program’s “Pennsylvania Society for Respiratory Care Outstanding Student of the Year” recipient.
Chubb, daughter of Charles and Tina Chubb, is a 2015 graduate of Red Land High School. She is a member of Alpha Chi Sigma, the professional chemistry fraternity, and is a member and former vice president of IUP’s American Medical Student Association.
Each year, the Pennsylvania Society for Respiratory Care recognizes students who have demonstrated both academic and clinical excellence and who will likely contribute greatly to the profession of respiratory care both now and in the future.
All respiratory therapy schools in the state of Pennsylvania that are fully accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Respiratory Care are eligible to present this award once each calendar year. All award winners receive a one-year membership renewal in the American Association for Respiratory Care and a certificate signed by the PSRC president.
Candidates for the award must demonstrate: academic excellence; commitment and dedication to the profession; excellence in clinical rotations and patient care; professionalism and be judged as most likely to contribute to the PRC mission.
Chubb was recognized at the PSRC Western Regional conference in October.
The Bachelor of Science in Respiratory Care degree program at IUP is taught in two phases. Phase one is taught with preclinical course work on IUP’s Indiana campus and the clinical phase, phase two, is offered at the IUP Northpointe campus in Freeport.
