The board oversees the licensing requirements and standards for respiratory therapists. Haas has a connection to Ferris State University as a member of the institution’s Respiratory Care Program Advisory Board in the College of Allied Health Sciences. In addition to Haas, Snyder appointed Beverly Cherwinski, of Vanderbilt, and Richard Tooker, of Grand Rapids, to serve on the Michigan Board of Respiratory Care.
“I am confident these individuals will use their expertise and backgrounds to best serve the citizens of Michigan and ensure they receive the most appropriate care and services,” Snyder said.
Haas serves as education and research coordinator for the University of Michigan Hospitals and Health Centers. He additionally is a Respiratory Care Program Advisory Committee member at Henry Ford Community College, Jackson Community College and Mott Community College.
