ACR bestows ASRT Foundation with humanitarian award

The American College of Radiology (ACR) Foundation has awarded the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) Foundation the 2017 Global Humanitarian Award in the Organization category for its efforts to provide radiologic science education for medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals working in underserved communities throughout the world.

The ACR singled out the ASRT Foundation Community Outreach Fellowship program, which has provided travel support for more than 60 ASRT members to perform volunteer medical relief services in 17 countries throughout Africa, Asia, Central and South America, and the Caribbean. Volunteers train local medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals and implement advanced radiologic systems in underserved countries.

The annual ACR Foundation Global Humanitarian Award recognizes individual radiologists, organizations, and industry groups for their volunteer efforts to improve quality access to sustainable radiological care throughout the world.

The ASRT Foundation will be presented with the award during the ACR's annual meeting on May 24 in Washington, DC.
