The scholarship, which honors the late founder of Cassling, a Midwest medical imaging equipment sales and service organization, will provide financial support to rural healthcare professionals seeking a degree or certification in the imaging or radiation therapy fields.
Omaha, Neb. – November 26, 2019 – Cassling is honored to announce a new opportunity for current and aspiring imaging professionals looking to embark upon the next stage of their careers.
The Bob Cassling Memorial Scholarship has been launched to support medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals working in rural areas in pursuit of an academic degree or obtaining an additional certification. Cassling, an Advanced Partner of Siemens Healthineers, hopes to give back to the imaging community by offering this scholarship to radiologic technologists, who will be counted on to provide exceptional patient care for decades to come.
“When my father founded Cassling 35 years ago, he did so with the idea that his company would provide a level of support to imaging professionals that they simply wouldn’t find anywhere else,” said Mike Cassling, CEO of Cassling. “He understood that rad techs and other specialists on the frontlines of patient care were the lifeblood of this industry. We wanted to do something to honor Bob’s memory, and what better way than with a scholarship in his name that directly aids students called to the imaging profession.”
This $4,000 scholarship, which will be awarded annually to two deserving scholarship candidates, is administered through the American Society of Radiologic Technologists. The application period is open from now until Jan. 31, 2020. The ASRT’s Scholarship Review Committee and Foundation Board will review applications and announce winners in late April 2020.
The Bob Cassling Memorial Scholarship continues Cassling’s commitment to healthcare education. For 15 years, Cassling’s Investing In You education series has provided free Continuing Education credits (CEs) to the imaging community through a series of in-person seminars and live webinars. New this year, the company also launched the Cassling Leadership Institute, dedicated to providing CEs to healthcare leaders.
