Jeanie McElroy, a radiologic technology student at Boise State University, has been selected to participate in the American Society of Radiologic Technologists 2014 Student Leadership Development Program.
McElroy will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to the ASRT Educational Symposium and Annual Governance and House of Delegates Meeting, June 26-29, in Orlando, Fla. In addition, McElroy will attend two educational courses specifically designed for students and be assigned a professional mentor during the House of Delegates meeting.
McElroy was one of 75 radiologic science students from around the country chosen to participate in the program.
The ASRT represents more than 152,000 members who perform medical imaging procedures or plan and deliver radiation therapy treatments. The Society also provides radiologic technology students with the tools, services and support they need to prepare for careers in medical imaging and radiation therapy. The Society is the largest radiologic science association in the world. Its mission is to advance and elevate the medical imaging and radiation therapy profession and to enhance the quality and safety of patient care.
“The Student Leadership Development Program provides medical imaging and radiation therapy students with insight into the ASRT governance process,” said ASRT President Julie Gill, Ph.D., R.T.(R)(QM). “While in Orlando, students will network with radiology leaders, participate in educational activities and learn from seasoned radiologic technologists. It’s a great way for students to get involved early.”
