A letter from the President
February 18, 2021
As we enter a new year, we bring our encouragement and hope for positive change. We look for things to improve all around us. The Covid-19 vaccine distribution is continuing as we start to see the caseloads decrease.
As healthcare workers, many have already been vaccinated, however, many others in our communities are still waiting for the opportunity. As we anticipate our dear friends and family members getting their vaccinations, we embrace change for better days ahead.
With regard to the NYSSRS “family” and positive change, we are proud to share that are very own NYSSRS past-President and current ASRT Speaker of the House of Delegates, Joe Whitton, is running for President-Elect of the ASRT. This is an honor for the NYSSRS; we are very proud of Joe’s accomplishments over his career and admire his zeal to continue to make a difference in our profession.
Joe has been a radiologic technologist for 40 years, he has certifications in radiography, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. In addition, he has been affiliated with the NYSSRS for 28 years and currently is the Clinical Assistant Professor/Program Director for the SHTM/Health Science Department at Stony Brook University.
To vote, please visit ASRT.org; polls open on February 16.
All the Best,
Ray Fradella – RT (R), MS
