Date:7/1/2014

Fairfax, Va., July 1, 2014The American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) has selected 30 distinguished members of the Society to receive the Fellow of ASTRO designation (FASTRO). The 2014 Class of Fellows will receive the recognition during the Awards Ceremony on Tuesday, September 16, at ASTRO's 56th Annual Meeting, September 14-17, 2014, at Moscone Center in San Francisco.

Awarded annually since 2006, the Fellows Program honors radiation oncology leaders who have been an ASTRO member for at least 15 years, who have contributed the equivalent of 10 years of service to ASTRO and who have made substantial contributions to the field of radiation oncology in the areas of research, education, patient care or service, and leadership. Including the 2014 Class of 30 Fellows, 242 of ASTRO's more than 10,000 members worldwide have received the FASTRO designation.

Candidates are nominated by a current ASTRO Fellow and supported by three additional ASTRO members. A 10-member Fellows Selection Committee reviewed all of the nominations and presented a slate of recommended Fellows to ASTRO's Board of Directors for final approval.

"These 30 new Fellows have contributed significantly to ASTRO, the specialty and cancer patients worldwide. Their leadership in and service to research, education and patient care efforts will continue to impact the cancer care we provide our patients," said ASTRO President Bruce G. Haffty, MD, FASTRO.
