Dr. Kimberly Clark, smiling

Since earning her doctorate degree from UNCG she has been more actively involved in professional service and research activities. Kim is co-chairing two committees as a member of the American Association for Respiratory Care (AARC) House of Delegates and working on a new project for the AARC Education Section Membership to develop a mentor/mentee program to help respiratory therapy faculty and aspiring faculty to achieve their professional goals. She is also working on developing two new graduate level respiratory therapy programs that are early in the development stages and was a co-author on 3 peer-reviewed publications in 2020. 

Kimberly shared, “The EdD program was very helpful in modeling a good online program. I use many of the practices that were incorporated into the EdD program in the courses that I currently teach online. The most important aspect about the EdD program for me was that it gave me a doctorate related to my professional field.”

Keep up the good work Kim!
