Lauren Hebert of Leonville, a radiologic technology student Northwestern State University, was selected to participate in the American Society of Radiologic Technologists 2020 Student Leadership Development Program.
The ASRT represents more than 156,000 members who perform medical imaging procedures or plan and deliver radiation therapy treatments. The Society also provides radiologic technology students with the tools, services and support they need to prepare for careers in medical imaging and radiation therapy.
Hebert will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to the 2020 ASRT Educational Symposium and Annual Governance and House of Delegates Meeting, June 24-28, in Albuquerque, New Mexico. In addition, Hebert will attend educational courses specifically designed for students, attend the House of Delegates meetings and be assigned a professional meeting partner.
Hebert was one of nearly 100 radiologic science students from around the country chosen to participate in the program.
“After graduation, I hope to advance my training in cardiovascular ultrasound,” she said. “I also intend to obtain a master’s degree in a healthcare-related field.”
