Rad. Tech. Student Veteran Participates in 2019 Patriot Day Ceremony at UCBA
Radiologic Technology student Brittany Russell participated in the 2019 Patriot Day ceremony at UCBA. Born and raised in Oklahoma, Brittany attended basic training at Ft. Jackson, SC and then AIT school in Ft. Lee, VA. She served with the 296th 1-2 Ghost Brigade Support Battalion and with the 1-14th Calvalry 1-2 Ghost Brigade. Honorably discharged in June 2016, she and her husband moved to Cincinnati in 2018 and welcomed their first child, Jessi, in February 2019. Brittany is hoping to commission as an officer after graduating with her Bachelor's degree.
Prestigious Honor for UCBA Professor
Julie Gill, chair of the Allied Health Department at UCBA, was selected as an ASRT (American Society of Radiologic Technologists) Fellow and formally recognized in June 2019 at the ASRT annual meeting in Orlando, FL. This is a very prestigious recognition as it has been granted to less than 200 members since the creation of the organization in 1956.
Gill has been a member of the ASRT for more than 20 years and is a former board member and president of the organization.
“It is a tremendous honor to be elevated to the status of ASRT Fellow. The fact that this honor is the result of unanimous approval by my peers and the ASRT Board of Directors makes it even more exciting and rewarding,” Gill says.
New ASRT Board Member
Heather Moore, associate professor and director of the UCBA Radiologic Technology program, was elected as a new ASRT board member and treasurer in July 2019. Her term will go through June 2020. This appointment builds on her extensive experience as a member of the OSRT (Ohio Society of Radiologic Technologists) where she served as a board member and was named the Technologist of the Year in 2016.
