BACK ON THE ASRT BOARD AND IN THE HOUSE OF DELEGATES


NYSSRS Past President

and  NYSSRS member is running for:

ASRT SECRETARY

Joseph Whitton, M.S., R.T.(R)(CT)(MR), FASRT
Mount Sinai, New York

One of the leading issues facing ASRT and our profession is encroachment upon our practice by unqualified individuals. As medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals, we know that our educational preparation and clinical experience unquestionably make us the most qualified personnel to perform medical imaging and radiation therapy procedures as described in the ASRT Practice Standards. Our work delivers the best quality of care and produces the best possible outcomes for our patients. As ASRT secretary, I will work to increase awareness of the high standards held by our profession and to vigorously oppose encroachment by less qualified individuals upon the work that we do best. I think that directing ASRT’s attention and resources to closely monitor pending legislative actions and challenges will be key to this effort.



NYSSRS member is running for:

RADIOGRAPHY CHAPTER

Jonathan Havrda, M.P.H., R.T.(R)(CT)(BD), CRA
Brooklyn, New York

The profession is constantly evolving and is very different depending on your work environment or location. Making sure that all technologists are up to date and receiving timely communication is of key importance. The ASRT Communities discussion boards are a great way for members and chapter leadership to discuss issues as they arise. Additionally, the ASRT publications help deliver information where it is needed. They cover topics such as practice changes, developing best practice protocols, and changes or development in equipment and are a valuable resource for technologists, educators and students. There is a major need to get students and younger radiology professionals involved in the profession. Showing them how, where and when to volunteer and get involved will help our profession remain strong and a vital part of the medical community.


NYSSRS Past Nomination Chair

and NYSSRS member is running for:

RADIATION THERAPY CHAPTER

Kyle Kearsley, M.S., R.T.(R)(T)(CT)

Working as a locum has allowed me to gain experience with a variety of protocols used in facilities across the country. As a result, I'm able to actively learn about the community's various techniques and points of view. This alone will make me a well-rounded and informed representative. I've worked with hundreds of professionals and treated a diverse patient population, and I've listened carefully to their hopes, concerns, questions, and complaints. My knowledge, interpersonal skills, and empathy enable me to build relationships, meet needs, and foster teamwork. My entire career has been spent in positions of responsibility where I have demonstrated leadership and organization. My ability to maintain focus under stress or pressure has identified me as a leader. I am eager to devote time and effort to expanding my knowledge so that I can contribute more to my field. I serve on the Editorial Review Board of the ASRT Radiation Therapist and the Radiation Oncology Safety Stakeholders Initiative Committee. I also sat on the NYSSRS board of directors. I've participated in the Student Leadership Development Program, ASRT Leadership Academy, Commission, SLDP Alumni Committee, and as sergeant-at-arms.
