Victoria Narbone, a junior in the Misericordia University Medical Imaging program from Wanaque, NJ was awarded a $1,000.00 scholarship from the American Society of Radiologic Sciences (ASRT). The scholarship is presented to one student in each state annually and is funded by the ASRT. Narbone's selection was made by the Pennsylvania Society of Radiologic Sciences Board of Directors.
To be eligible for the scholarship, students must maintain a minimum 3.0 GPA, and be a member of the Pennsylvania Society of Radiologic Sciences. In addition, they must complete a lengthy application process outlining their membership in
professional societies, community service, academic activities and complete several essays. Narbone was recently selected by the Medical Imaging department's faculty to serve on the Dean of the College of Health Sciences and Education's Student Advisory Panel.
"Our entire department is very proud of Victoria for receiving this scholarship. She is an outstanding student and very involved on campus, both in the major and the university as a whole," said Paula Pate-Schloder, MS, RT, associate professor and Medical Imaging department chairperson.
The mission of the American Society of Radiologic Technologists is to advance and elevate the medical imaging and radiation therapy profession and to enhance the quality and safety of patient care. ASRT strives to be the premier professional association for the medical imaging and radiation therapy community through education, advocacy, research, and innovation.
