The pledged amount paved the way for the campaign to reach its $1 million milestone in commitments from individuals and organizations. Raised funds will go toward developing scholarships, grants and other programs for radiologic technology educators, students and clinical personnel.

“We are especially pleased to be a part of the important work of the ASRT Foundation in providing opportunities that range from introductory student scholarships to professional scholarships for additional education,” said Jeffrey Crowley, RT(R), president of the ARRT Board of Trustees. “Education, together with the certification and registration our organization provides, is key to building upon the profession’s reputation for delivering quality health care and services to patients.”

In gratitude of the contribution, ASRT is naming a study room in the ASRT Museum and Archives after the ARRT. Scheduled to open in the ASRT office this month, the museum will house the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists Museum Study Center, which will provide visiting scholars and historians with a dedicated space to perform research on the history of radiologic technology.

A long-standing partner of the ASRT Foundation, the ARRT has supported education and scholarships for radiologic technologists through programs like the Royce Osborn Minority Student Scholarship and the Advancing Your Profession: Education and Professional Growth Grants program.
