ASRT Donates $10,000 to Support Hurricane Ian Recovery Efforts

Sep 30, 2022

The American Society of Radiologic Technologists has donated $10,000 to the American Red Cross to assist with disaster relief efforts caused by Hurricane Ian. The donation is being made on behalf of the ASRT’s 157,000 members, health care professionals who perform medical imaging procedures or plan and deliver radiation therapy treatments.

“We’re deeply saddened by the destruction caused to so many communities from Hurricane Ian,” said ASRT President Daniel L. Gonzales, M.S.R.S., R.T.(R), FASRT. “Knowing that many of our own members and their families may have been impacted, we're committed to help them recover.”

ASRT currently has 8,485 members who reside in Florida, the Society’s second largest membership state. In the past, ASRT has made numerous financial donations to the American Red Cross for hurricane, tornado and flooding disaster relief efforts.

With thousands of homes affected and damage stretching across multiple states, the American Red Cross is on the ground operating shelters and providing meals and supplies to affected areas as quickly as possible.

“We value the close relationship we’ve maintained throughout the years with the American Red Cross. Our goal is to support those affected by Hurricane Ian and provide assistance to our members who are on the frontlines of health care in the state,” said ASRT Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director Sal Martino, Ed.D., R.T.(R), FASRT, FASAE, CAE.
