MRT Week

MRT Week 2021 will take place from November 7-13

MRT Week is an annual celebration (which falls on the week of November 8th every year) of the essential role that medical radiation technologists (MRTs) play in the healthcare system. MRTs deliver professional imaging and radiation-related treatment services with a caring touch, allowing patients to fully benefit from the latest in medical diagnostic and treatment technology.

 

MRT Week Items

The order form for MRT Week 2021 items will be available in early September. All CAMRT members are eligible to make orders. Keep an eye out for the launch of the form in your email!

 

MRT Week Webinar

CAMRT will run a webinar available to MRTs at several times over MRT Week. This year, speaker Teri Price will be presenting a talk about the Greg’s Wings organization.

Teri is currently the Executive Director of Greg’s Wings Projects, a not-for-profit organization created to honour Greg Price. Greg was Teri’s brother and the impact of Greg’s journey has led to Teri’s commitment, along with her family, to drive improvements in care. The presentation will start with a viewing of the short film, Falling Through the Cracks, followed by an interactive session with Greg’s family.

 

National MRT Awareness Campaign

This year, we are again using MRT Week as the platform for national awareness for the MRT profession. We hope you will join us in supporting the campaign by placing the posters you order prominently at your sites before during and after MRT Week, and by helping to amplify the awareness push.

Posters will be available for order in late August and September. Electronic files of last year’s posters files are available for download now (in the order seen above):

Together, as we push for greater recognition of all that MRTs do for Canadians, CAMRT is asking you to actively join in the campaign by taking a few simple, but important steps.

 

Stay tuned for further announcements about our planned awareness activities, contests and more in the coming months.
