Dec. 29, 2016

JRCERTThe Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology’s gift to the ASRT Foundation’s 30th anniversary Celebration Campaign continued its years of support for the Foundation and its outstanding work on behalf of medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals and students.

“JRCERT and the Foundation have similar missions,” said Chief Executive Officer Leslie F. Winters, M.S., R.T.(R). “Both organizations work to improve the quality and safety of patient care. Additionally, we have enjoyed a long-standing and mutually beneficial relationship with the ASRT since the founding of JRCERT in 1969.”

In an ongoing effort to support the R.T. community, JRCERT and the ASRT coordinate an annual meeting between their chief executive officers where they discuss the state of the radiologic sciences profession and seek opportunities to work collaboratively to better serve radiologic technologists.

“The ASRT also helped us to assist our programs by lending its creative expertise to develop learning modules, which provide faculty with a better understanding of the accreditation process,” Leslie said.

With its focus on improving the quality and safety of patient care in the radiologic sciences, JRCERT recognizes the important role the Foundation plays in ensuring a bright future for radiologic technologists and radiation therapists. Combining this shared mission with its long history of working with the ASRT, it should come as no surprise that the organization was eager to be a part of supporting the Foundation’s future.

“The Board and staff at JRCERT hope that this contribution will further assist students and radiologic science professionals advance in their career,” said Leslie. “The organization is proud to be a part of this campaign and looks forward to many more years of working collaboratively with the ASRT and providing a continued high level of support to the Foundation.”
