2 May 2024 1:46 PM | Leah, Communications Committee Chair Lenz (Administrator)

This year the IACPR is honoring Kim Eppen for her amazing contributions to this association.

From Janie Knipper:

Kim Eppen is an extremely valuable asset to Pulmonary Rehab, IACPR, & AACVPR; but most of all to the patients who had the opportunity to work with Kim. Kim's positive approach to patients and their significant others, and her use of health coaching made a tremendous impact on their lives, helping them to see the changes that are needed to be made to live a better life. Kim's ability to teach the science of exercise in an understandable and practical way helped all of us as staff become better practitioners. I was truly blessed to have had the opportunity to work so closely with Kim & learn from her for so many years!

 Eric Larson:

Kim has been a huge asset to the organization, not only with her experience in the field and willingness to share that through presentations and publications, but also her overall love of the field. She is passionate in what she teaches, and that passion is seen by all. She has been an active member for years and has presented multiple times at both the national and state level. 

Brandy Tripp:

Kim was created to do good work, to empower & inspire. She has worked in Pulmonary Rehab for 26 years and her passion for what we do is contagious. She has held academic positions throughout her entire career and is committed to challenging herself and to continued learning. She is invested in challenging herself, her colleagues in the field, the future of our field, and most importantly our patients. Kim's clinical experience, knowledge, passion, & willingness to share in the service of others is unmatched. 

Kim Eppen PT, PhD, FAACVPR is the Distinguished Member of the Year.
