Alumna and Respiratory Care Adjunct Appointed to State Board

Elizabeth GlasserA graduate of Ferris State University’s Respiratory Care program, who serves as an adjunct clinical instructor for current Associate of Applied Science students in that curriculum, has been appointed to the Michigan Board of Respiratory Care.

Elizabeth Glasser, of Gaylord, a 2007 graduate of the AAS program at Ferris, earned her bachelor’s degree in Applied Science from Siena Heights University in Adrian, and Master of Health Science from Trident University, in Cypress, Calif. She is currently employed as a cardiopulmonary supervisor at Otsego Memorial Hospital, in Gaylord, and serves as an adjunct clinical instructor in Ferris’ Respiratory Care program, making field observations of first-and second-year students. Glasser is also a doctoral candidate at A.T. Still University, in Kirksville, Mo.

Glasser and Andrew Wierauch, of Plymouth, were appointed last month by Gov. Rick Snyder to the Michigan Board of Respiratory Care, which is housed with the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs. The 11-member board assists in overseeing the licensure requirements and standards for Michigan's respiratory therapists. Glasser is replacing another appointee, and that four-year term will expire Dec. 31, 2019.

"I thank Elizabeth and Andrew for their service, and am confident they will positively impact this board," Snyder said, in a press release issued by his office.
