The Society for MR Radiographers & Technologists (SMRT) is an international society and global community of MR technologists that meets annually. It’s a nonprofit organization for techs to share expertise and educational resources and promotes education, communication, and dissemination of cutting-edge MR developments. This year, HMRI’s Thao Tran was elected to be a Policy Board Member for a three-year term where she, along with the rest of the Board, will have the authority to establish and implement policies and programs for the SMRT. As a Board officer, Tran will also chair one of the following committees a year: Program Committee, Abstract Committee, Online Learning Committee, Safety Committee, Membership Committee, Marketing Committee, Global Relations Committee. Tran’s term will officially start at this year’s meeting in May.
“I’m very excited and honored to be a part of this society as a policy board officer, and hope to make productive contributions over the next few years!” – Thao Tran
Tran has been involved in SMRT for about nine years and was a volunteer Abstract Reviewer for the previous two years. As a reviewer, she read through research abstracts and scored them in order to choose the ones that will be presented at the SMRT meeting. Congratulations, Thao!
