YSU Respiratory Care Graduates in High Demand

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Dr. Kelly Colwell, program director of respiratory care at Youngstown State University, called respiratory therapist students the “unsung heroes” of the health care profession.

YSU is one of three Ohio universities to offer a master’s degree in respiratory therapy and one of five to offer a bachelor’s in the field, and Colwell says respiratory therapists from YSU are in high demand.

“There isn’t a week go by that I don’t have recruiters wanting to come in,” Colwell says.
