The American Society of Radiologic Technologists has named Ryan Appold, R.T.(R), as the 2022 Student to Leadership Development Program Alumni of the Year. Appold was selected for this honor by the ASRT Committee on the Student to Leadership Development Program.

Appold was part of a cohort of nearly 100 students who took part in the 2019 ASRT Annual Governance and House of Delegates Meeting in Orlando, Florida. He is a 2020 graduate of the radiologic technology program at Middlesex Community College in Connecticut. As a student, Appold was a member of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, and the JRCERT awarded him with the Certificate for Excellence in Radiologic Technology for his dedication to the profession. Appold also got involved with ASRT while he was in school as he wrote a column titled, “Reel Life Lessons,” which appeared in ASRT Scanner.

Appold has been an active student member of the Connecticut Society of Radiologic Technologists. At the 2019 CSRT Annual Conference, Appold and some of his peer student members developed the presentation, “Improvisation in the Medical Field,” which they presented during the CSRT conference’s educational track. The CSRT recognized his commitment to the affiliate in 2020 and presented him with the CSRT Student Involvement Award. Appold currently works at the University of Connecticut Health Center: John Dempsey Hospital as a diagnostic radiologic technologist.

Outside of work, he serves as president-elect of the CSRT and chairs its Membership Committee. From 2019-2021, he was the chair of the CSRT Annual Conference Committee, and he served as the CSRT secretary from 2020-2021.

ASRT membership will recognize Appold at the Honors Evening ceremony at the annual governance meeting in Orlando, Florida, on June 24.
