Latimer elected to American Society of Radiologic Technologists board
Michael C. Latimer, associate professor at Palm Beach State College, has been elected to serve as vice president of the board of directors of the American Society of Radiologic Technologists for 2014-2015.
Latimer teaches medical imaging for Palm Beach State’s Radiography Associate in Science degree program on the College’s Palm Beach Gardens campus. The program prepares students for careers as radiologic technologists—the health care professionals who perform medical imaging procedures or plan and deliver radiation therapy.
“It’s an honor and privilege to be able to serve my profession and the ASRT as a volunteer at this level,” Latimer said. “It’s a humbling experience to serve so many members and to work with an outstanding board and staff to move our profession and the ASRT forward while improving patient care.”
Latimer began his one-year term as vice president in June and previously served as the ASRT board’s secretary-treasurer. He holds a Master of Science degree in Radiologic Science from Midwestern State University and is certified and registered in radiography by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.
With 152,000 members, ASRT is the largest radiologic science association devoted to the medical imaging and radiation therapy profession.
