A letter from the President to the Membership

April 6, 2023

Dear Colleague,

Thank you to everyone who attended our virtual lecture by Dr. Evan Cohn. 

We have some exciting news to share!     For the first time in NYSSRS history,

the NYSSRS  has received the 2023 ASRT Affiliate Award for Advocacy.


The ASRT recently informed us:

“Based on a nomination submitted by Samantha Skubish, R.T.(R)(T), the ASRT Committee on R.T. Advocacy has selected the New York State Society for Radiologic Sciences to receive this award, presented as part of the 2023 ASRT Annual Governance and House of Delegates meeting in Reno, Nevada, is given to an ASRT affiliate society that has demonstrated outstanding legislative or regulatory advocacy efforts on behalf of the radiologic sciences community.”

“It is a pleasure for the ASRT Board of Directors and members to recognize the New York State Society for Radiologic Sciences’ efforts in providing radiologic technologists and radiation therapists the knowledge, resources and support they need to advocate for professional standards and quality patient care. The New York State Society for Radiologic Sciences is truly deserving of this award.”

We are deeply grateful for this honor. We would like to thank our partner, RTANYS- Radiation Therapy Association of New York State for working with us and for the nomination.  We are inspired, witnessing their society and visions come to fruition. 

We recognize Joe Whitton’s support for making this connection between NYSSRS and RTANYS.  Also, special thank you to our legislative committee, Cindy Close and Bob Geiser for their immeasurable commitment to meeting NYSSRS mission, protecting the interests of New York’s RT’s. 

We would like to congratulate three of our members on their recently elected positions. Congratulations to:

Joseph Witton
