The ASRT Foundation has awarded funding to a researcher at Weber State University in Ogden, Utah. Tanya Nolan, Ed.D., R.T.(R), is investigating correlations between burnout and self-esteem among imaging professionals, educators and students during COVID-19. Dr. Nolan is an associate professor at Weber State University who serves as the Director of Diagnostic Medical Sonography and MSRS Innovation and Improvement.

“With the generous grant provided by the ASRT Foundation,” Dr. Nolan said, “I believe an increased understanding of the mental, psychological and physical conditions experienced by imaging professionals, educators, and students impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic is vital to the support and care of patients and the future of our profession.”

The ASRT Foundation, philanthropic arm of the American Society of Radiologic Technologists, funds and shares the research and analysis of many issues that affect medical imaging technologists and radiation therapists, helping to cultivate the next generation of researchers. The Foundation offers a continuum of research grant opportunities to support researchers of all experience levels.
