ASRT Leaders Connection: Governance, Government Relations, Affiliate Update
Leaders Connection Newsletter Q4 issue
It is remarkable that a year has passed since the first Leaders Connection was written! So much has happened during that time and we hope you all have had a safe and prosperous year. Our profession is strong, but it is also facing many challenges; we must all work together, united, to protect the public, our patients, and the future of our profession. Please encourage your friends and colleagues to volunteer and voice their opinions both now and when these critical issues arise. To paraphrase Mike Latimer, our ASRT president, we are all radiologic technologists!
