Gary Greathouse to Help Improve Diagnostic Imaging In Kenya
Two thirds of the world’s population has little or no access to radiology services, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) Education and Research Foundation and RAD-AID International created a Fellowship Program for Developing Countries that offers funding opportunities to support technologists and therapists interested in serving in the developing world. Award recipients join RADAID’s project teams in international initiatives designed to improve access to quality medical imaging for populations in need.
Gary Greathouse, MSRT, (R), Program Director of Mercy School of Radiologic Technology in Canton, Ohio, was recently awarded an ASRT/RAD-AID fellowship grant to travel to Nairobi, Kenya, as part of a multidisciplinary health care team. Members will assess needs and plan a radiology-training program, which will begin next year.
Greathouse was chosen because of his educational background in radiology science and desire to serve. Gary is pictured in the middle of the back row. (Reprinted with permission from Mercy Medical Center)
