The American Society of Technologic Radiologists (ASRT) has announced the election of three new officers to serve on its 2014-2015 board of directors.

Sandra Hayden, MD, the board’s current vice president, will be promoted to president-elect in 2014. She will serve additional one-year terms as president and chairman of the board, respectively. Hayden currently serves as administrative director of radiation therapy services at the University of Texas, MD Anderson Cancer Center.

The board’s current secretary-treasurer, Michael Latimer, MSRS, will become the new vice president. He also holds a position as a medical imaging professor at Palm Beach State College. Kevin Rush, MHA, currently administrator of imaging services at TriHealth, Inc, in Cincinnati, will serve as the new secretary-treasurer.

“It is a great honor to serve the profession and the ASRT,” Hayden said. “I look forward to collaborating with members and other stakeholders to provide medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals with the necessary resources to adapt to changes in health care. By arming our members with the tools they need to succeed, we can continue to provide patients with the best experience possible.”

“As part of the ASRT Board of Directors, I’m excited to tackle new challenges and help improve patient care,” Rush added. “I believe the ASRT must continue to advocate for professional standards, provide opportunities for professional development and be the leading source of information for the radiologic technology profession.”

The new officers will begin their terms following the 2014 ASRT Annual Governance and House of Delegates meeting June 27 to 29 in Orlando.
