RAD-AID & ASRT Foundation Expand Outreach Fellowship

Aug. 21, 2020

RAD-AID and the ASRT Foundation are pleased to offer volunteer opportunities for ASRT members interested in joining the RAD-AID USA Healthcare Disparities Initiative. This program empowers radiology and radiation oncology outreach to foster health equity for medically underserved communities. These communities and populations have historically suffered disproportionate mortality and morbidity across a range of conditions due to barriers in accessing health care.

Selected applicants for this program will receive the RAD-AID ASRT Foundation Outreach Fellowship award in the amount of $2,000. Preference will be given to applicants who have experienced financial and career-related challenges arising from the COVID-19 pandemic.

RAD-AID International and the ASRT Foundation are pleased to collaborate on a program designed to give radiologic technologists the opportunity to contribute to the health care needs of the low-resource regions. The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that two-thirds of the world’s population has little or no access to radiology services. Technologists and therapists are a vital part of the solution because high quality imaging that is safe for patients and effective for diagnosis requires highly skilled imaging and therapy professionals. To address this worldwide problem, RAD-AID and the ASRT Foundation are collaborating to offer funded opportunities to support technologists and therapists interested in volunteering in underserved regions of the world. Recipients of this award will join RAD-AID’s project teams in international initiatives designed to improve access to quality medical imaging and radiation therapy for populations in need.
