Only 75 students were chosen from across the country to participate in the program.  They will recieve an all-expenses paid trip the ASRT Educational Symposium in Orlando, Florida in June 2014, and will attend two educational courses specifically designed for students.

“While in Orlando, students will network with radiology leaders, participate in educational activities and learn from seasoned radiologic technologists." said ASRT President Julie Gill.  "It’s a great way for students to get involved early.”

Congratulations to Allura and Jade!

Mass. Eye & Ear Emergency Room Staff To Describe Day of Marathon Bombings

Delta Dental, NHTI, partner with local marathoner Jack Savage to bring the behind-the-scenes story to Concord

The Boston Marathon – along with the lives of many who were running or watching the race – changed forever last April when two bombs detonated near the finish line. As the explosions shocked the world, bystanders, emergency responders, and medical personnel were credited with quick action that saved lives.

On Wednesday, March 19, at 6:30 pm in Sweeney Auditorium, Dr. Aaron Remenschneider and two Registered Nurses, Deb Trocchi and Maureen Martinez, who were on duty at Mass. Eye and Ear Infirmary during the marathon bombings will describe what it was like in the emergency room that day, dealing with injuries that affected the senses, while the city wondered what was happening and why.  Mass. Eye and Ear was one of eight hospitals that treated bombing victims – and these individuals were on the front lines of those who helped.

The trio will describe what it was like in the emergency room, how they as medical professionals reacted, the kinds of injuries they dealt with, and what they learned from working on those injuries and the overall response to the disaster. 

Thanks to the generous sponsorship of Northeast Delta Dental, the talk is free and open to the public.  It is being arranged as part of the fundraising efforts of Concord's Jack Savage, who is running the Boston Marathon this year as part of Team Eye and Ear.
Savage, who works across the river from NHTI and Northeast Delta Dental at the Society for the Protection of NH Forests, ran as part of Team Eye and Ear in 2012, and was near the finish last year to watch his brother.  “I feel astoundingly lucky,” he said. “My brother finished about 20 minutes before the bombs went off, and so I was a few blocks away when it happened. Because I was fortunate I feel an obligation to give back.”

Aaron Remenschneider, M.D., is the Chief Otolaryngology Resident at Mass. Eye and Ear.  Dr. Remenschneider also will be running the Boston Marathon this year as part of Team Eye and Ear.
Deb Trocchi, R.N., is Clinical Leader in the Emergency Department, and Maureen Martinez, R.N., is Nurse Manager, Emergency Department, Nursing Education.
