RESPIRATORY THERAPY :: Lambda Beta National Honor Society
LAMBDA BETA HONOR SOCIETY:
The National Honor Society for the
Profession of Respiratory Care was formed in 1986 to promote, recognize and
honor scholarship, scholarly achievement, service, and character of students,
graduates, and faculty members of the profession. The name of the society is
based on the goals of the Respiratory Care profession: sustaining "life
and breath" for all mankind. Lambda (Λ) is the Greek letter "L",
and beta (Β) is the Greek letter "B". Lambda Beta Society currently
has over 100 Chapters established at Respiratory Care programs across the
The purpose of the Society is to
promote achievement of high scholarly standards within the schools and chapters
through the encouragement of membership and graduation with honors. Membership
benefits and advantages include the recognition of individual achievement and
scholarship. Individuals' achievements are recognized by having their name
entered into a permanent "Roll of Excellence", graduating with honors
by displaying a ribbon on their graduation gown during commencement, graduation
with honors noted on their official transcripts, wearing and displaying the
Lambda Beta insignia, and the right to list honor society membership on their
curriculum vitae. In addition to recognizing the achievement of students,
Lambda Beta chapters may choose to participate in other activities promoting
leadership and scholarship within the profession including social activities (i.e.,
annual luncheons, recognition dinners, or graduation breakfasts), scholarship
fund raising and distribution, as well as special fund raising and research.
