April 21, 2016 — vRad (Virtual Radiologic) announced the recipients of its 2016 Radiology Business Management Association (RBMA) Radiology Summit scholarships. This is the fifth year that vRad has partnered with RBMA to provide a total of $9,000 in scholarships awarded to advance radiology management education.

vRad awarded three individual $1,500 scholarships to the following recipients who will attend the RBMA Radiology Summit, April 24-27 in Colorado Springs, Colo.:

  • Stephanie Dybul, MBA, RT(R)(VI), CIRCC, division administrator for vascular and interventional radiology at The Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee;
