AARC Member Appears on The Tonight Show

January 27, 2009

If you’re a fan of The Tonight Show With Jay Leno you were probably surprised to see AARC member, Michelle Barker, featured in a segment entitled “You Make the Call” which aired December 12, 2008.

Barker, who was in Anaheim for the AARC’s International Respiratory Congress in December, was selected by Leno to participate in the sketch. Her task was to select the male model from among three Santas who paraded on stage. Michelle had no problem spotting the fake Santa. There were obviously a lot of RTs in the audience as well, as a cheer went up when she was identified as a respiratory therapist.

Barker is an assistant professor at Tarrant County College in Hurst, Texas. You can see the clip here.
