INA, Ill. (Nov. 20, 2019) — Rend Lake College Radiologic Technology students celebrated National Radiologic Technologist Week earlier this month.
Pathology posters were displayed in the library and students delivered treats to their clinical sites to show appreciation for all the hard work they put into helping them on their educational journey.
NRTW® is celebrated annually to recognize the vital work of R.T.s across the nation. The celebration takes place each year during the week that includes Nov. 8 to commemorate the discovery of the x-ray by Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen on Nov. 8, 1895. The week-long celebration calls attention to the important role medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals play in patient care and health care safety.
NRTW® 2019 was celebrated Nov. 3-9. This year's theme was "Waves of the Future." Check out the new poster!
"This week was a great opportunity to draw attention to the profession," said RLC Rad Tech Program Director Holly Heisner. "Radiologic Technologists are a vital part to the healthcare team, and NTRW allows them to receive some recognition. We are so thankful here at RLC for all of our clinical sites and all they do for our students!"
