ASRT Donating $10,000 in Support of Hurricane Irma Relief Efforts

September 12, 2017 — The American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) announced it will donate $10,000 to the American Red Cross to assist with disaster relief efforts caused by Hurricane Irma. The donation is on behalf of the ASRT’s 153,000 members.

“Hurricane Irma hit shortly after Hurricane Harvey landed in the Houston area, so there are a lot individuals who need support right now,” said ASRT President Amanda Garlock, M.S., R.T.(R)(M). “We hope that our donation to the Red Cross for Hurricane Irma, coupled with our donation for Hurricane Harvey relief efforts, will help our members and their families get their lives back in order.”

"We are currently working with the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists to determine how many radiologic technologists are affected by the hurricane,” Garlock continued. “As we are doing for members who live in Federal Emergency Management Agency-declared disaster areas in Texas, we will extend the ASRT membership period for members and provide access to alternative programs so they can maintain their membership and continuing education requirements.” 

“There could be as many as 40,000 registered radiologic technologists living in areas affected by Hurricane Irma,” said ASRT CEO and Executive Director Sal Martino, Ed.D., R.T.(R), FASRT, FASAE, CAE. “We’re committed to helping the technologists get back on their feet and continue to provide top-notch care to patients in need of help after this devastating period.”
