Mercy College Medical Imaging Student Recognized With National Award
Mercy College Medical Imaging student Sharon Mohammed was recognized as the AuntMinnie Most Effective Radiologic Sciences Educator for 2021. AuntMinnie is the largest and most comprehensive community website for medical imaging professionals worldwide. The prestigious Minnie awards have recognized excellence in radiology while at the same time chronicling the important educators, researchers, products, research studies, and news developments that have shaped the specialty.
Sharon is an advanced imaging specialist in CT at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City After earning her diagnostic radiologic technologist license from Bellevue Hospital School of Radiologic Technology, she served for almost two decades as a lead CT technologist at NYU Langone Health, where she regularly offered continuing education for technical staff.
She shares her knowledge and expertise not only in the classroom but also through an active writing life. This year, she has written more than 10 articles on topics ranging from team building among technologists, radiologic technologists' role in imaging patients vaccinated for COVID-19, and ways to prevent pandemic burnout, to boosting technologist education and the use of TikTok for radiology content.
And her efforts have been noticed: This summer, Mohammed was featured on the cover of ASRT Scanner, published by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT), in a profile that recognized her accomplishments as a radiologic sciences educator.
Quentin T. Moore, Ph.D., MPH, R.T.(R)(T)(QM), Director of Imaging Sciences says, "Ms. Mohammed is quite impressive and has the drive to make a difference. She goes above and beyond, and this award is a testament of her efforts and professional accomplishments."
