HEALTHeCAREERS Network Renews $15,000 Scholarship Pledge
Date:10/19/2009

Contribution provides funding for continuing education.

Englewood, CO (Vocus) October 20, 2009 -- Aaron K. Sarff is one of 10 radiologic technologists to receive a recent $1,500 scholarship to continue healthcare training, and it could not have come at a better time.

His newborn son just underwent major heart surgery.

"While the scholarship won't cover all of the remaining cost of my program, it covers enough to help me sleep at night and lets me focus on taking care of my family," Sarff said.

HEALTHeCAREERS Network pledged the same amount last year to provide radiologic technologists with funds to complete an associate, bachelor's or graduate degree, as well as additional certification in medical imaging, radiation therapy or medical dosimetry.

The monetary awards are administered through the ASRT Education and Research Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT), and also funded by other corporate sponsors such as the Healthcare Providers Service Organization.

"HEALTHeCAREERS Network is proud to renew its support of educational initiatives provided by the philanthropic arm of the largest radiologic science organization in the world," said Jennifer Arocha, the Network's director of association and partner marketing. "These critical scholarships will ensure radiologic technologists stay current in their field throughout changes in healthcare technology and medical standards."

New $1,500 scholarships will be awarded early next year.

"The Foundation has awarded more than $1.5 million to help more than 350 men and women enter or advance their careers in medical imaging and radiation therapy," said Sal Martino, Ed.D., R.T.(R), FASRT, the ASRT foundation's chief executive office. "We are proud to have HEALTHeCAREERS support our mission."
