LBCC Student to Participate in ASRT Educational Symposium

Kelly Solberg, a radiologic technology student at Linn Benton Community College, has been selected to participate in the American Society of Radiologic Technologists 2013 Student Leadership Development Program.

Solberg, a Eugene resident, was one of 61 students chosen from more than 130 entries submitted by radiologic science students from around the country. She is in her second year in the LBCC Diagnostic Imaging program.

Solberg will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to the ASRT Educational Symposium and Annual Governance and House of Delegates Meeting, June 13-16, in Albuquerque, N.M. In addition, Solberg will attend two educational courses specifically designed for students and be assigned a professional mentor during the House of Delegates meeting.

“The Student Leadership Development Program gives medical imaging and radiation therapy students the opportunity to experience firsthand how the ASRT governance process works,” said ASRT President Donna L. Thaler Long, M.S.M., R.T.(R)(M)(QM), FASRT. “While in Albuquerque, students will participate in educational activities, network with radiology leaders and learn from seasoned radiologic technologists. It’s a great way for students to get involved early and jumpstart their careers.”

The ASRT represents 150,000 members who perform medical imaging procedures or plan and deliver radiation therapy treatments. The Society also provides radiologic technology students with the tools, services and support they need to prepare for careers in medical imaging and radiation therapy.
