May 28, 2021

Dear Friends,

On behalf of our entire board and committee chairs, we hope that this finds you and your family well.

As we enter the fifteenth month of COVID-19, we appear to see the light at the end of the long tunnel.  With most of our population vaccinated and with continued vigilance, we are starting to get back to normalcy in our personal and professional lives.

Your NYSSRS board has met six times since October of 2020.  Five of those meetings were held via Zoom and the last one, our spring board meeting, was held in-person in April.

It was during this in-person meeting that we decided to have an in-person annual conference in Corning, NY on October 21-23, 2021.  Careful precautionary steps to keep everyone safe including social distancing and cleaning protocols will be taken.

There were other changes made as a result of listening to many of you in the past.  These include:

v  *NEW FEATURE* After the annual conference, we will be offering 1-2 virtual presentations on a given date after our conference in October, 2021 (to be announced) to all members, free of charge.

v  The Student Quiz Bowl will be held on Friday, October 22nd instead of on Saturday.  Doing this will give our students a chance to focus their preparatory attention earlier in the conference so that they can better enjoy the rest of it.

v  A focus of this board is to become more involved in legislative bills in the NYS Assembly & Senate.  We have coordinated with the ASRT to display a legislative link on our NYSSRS.org website so that you can see the key issues involving our profession.  We have also petitioned our legislators on certain advocacy issues.

There is more to share at our annual meeting in Corning, NY.  Our goal is to make you proud to be a member of the NYSSRS, so much so, that you feel empowered to support your profession as you see fit.

Wishing you a safe and fun summer season.

All the Best,

A letter from the President

 


                                                                                        February 18, 2021

Dear Friends,

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

2 Bills has been introduced in  the NYS Assembly & Senate in January  of this year to make a change in ARTICLE 35.  The first would allow PA's to perform fluoroscopic exams and the second would  permit Chiropractors a greatly expanded use of Radiologic Imaging modalities. See links below:
