Another great UNMC showing at this year’s virtual NSRT conference

article by Michael Dutt

In the spring of 2021 the Nebraska Society of Radiologic Technologists hosted their annual Business Session. Normally the business session is part of the larger Annual Conference, but due to COVID-19 the conference was re-imagined for the 2021 year. Instead of the usual 3-day event held in person, the NSRT offered several virtual continuing education events for students and members to attend.

The business session, held on April 15th, offered two free continuing education credits to all attendees. On the following Friday, the student symposium offered two guest speakers, one on résumé building and interview tips, and another on communication. The competition winners follow:
