ASRT Donates $10,000 to American Red Cross for Tornado Relief Efforts

Mar 31, 2023

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

“On behalf of all ASRT members, we want to convey our deepest concern and sympathy to those affected by the storms,” said ASRT President Daniel L. Gonzales, M.S.R.S., R.T.(R), FASRT. “We realize that some of our members and their families may have been impacted and we’re committed to help them recover.”

ASRT currently has more than 4,000 members who live and work in Mississippi and Alabama.

The Red Cross is working with its partners on the ground to mobilize relief supplies and disaster workers and is coordinating with local and state officials to support people in need.

“In addition to the individuals who were affected by the storms, we want to recognize the first responders, emergency personnel and health care workers for their heroic efforts in providing vital care and comfort among such devastation,” said ASRT Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director Melissa B. Pergola, Ed.D., R.T.(R)(M), FASRT.
