Mississippi Students Learn Advocacy Skills

Annually, the Mississippi Society of Radiologic Technologists hosts students from the radiologic sciences programs throughout Mississippi for a day at the state capitol building to meet with lawmakers and discuss the importance of qualified radiologic technologists providing care to patients. 

The event, geared to allow students to learn the legislative process, included sitting in on the legislative sessions and visiting with state lawmakers. Students are provided talking points so they can educate Mississippi lawmakers about the important role radiologic technologists play in the health care setting; focusing on educational requirements and what it means to have a certified, educated radiologic technologist perform examinations. Program directors register students. MSRT’s goal is to get students involved in advocacy before they enter the work force.
