OSRT Reps Going to RT in DC!
Jason Lee, Emma Palmer and Tiffany Roman will be participating on behalf of Ohio in ASRT's RT in DC event 2014. Dr. Julie Gill will also attend the RT in DC event not only as an Ohio RT but also as President of ASRT.
Each year, the American Society of Radiologic Technologists hosts the nation’s largest advocacy event for medical imaging technologists, radiologist assistants and radiation therapists. Participants in the event meet with Capitol Hill lawmakers about issues facing the radiologic technology profession. ASRT invites its members to attend this year’s meeting and advocate for patients, the public and the profession. 2014 marks the 16th anniversary of R.T. in D.C.
R.T. in D.C. is a great opportunity for members of affiliate societies to network with colleagues from other states who are interested in advocacy. Attendees share stories about what is happening in their states, discuss how they handle legislative or regulatory issues, share condolences about defeats and celebrate victories. Registration is now open and will close Feb. 28.
Ohio medical imaging and therapeutic professionals are invited to join the virtual march from home on Tuesday March 19th. Thank you for your support. For more information visit RT in DC.
