PCCC Radiography Students Take Top Prizes in Scientific Poster Contest
at NJ Society of Radiologic Technologists Convention

Posted 6-19-17

Two teams of PCCC Radiography seniors won second and third place in the 2017 Student Scientific Poster competition at the New Jersey Society of Radiologic Technologists annual meeting held at Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City last April.

Competing against submissions by six other schools of radiography, the informational poster titled “Important Practices in Diagnostic Radiography” took the second place prize of $200 to be shared by team members Paul Primerano, Nil Shah (Passaic), Alexandra Giannini (Wayne), and team leader Jessica Bonelli (Wanaque).

Third place went to the poster “Living With Radiation” by Jonathan Rodriguez (Paterson), Simona Dan (West Milford), and team leader Danny Elchagea (Nutley).  They share a $100 prize.

Poster displays should be of “general interest and value to radiographers and radiography students from an educational viewpoint,” according to contest rules published by NJSRT.  The students may select their own poster topics. Winners are judged on their “originality and technical excellence.”

The winning team members were among 10 PCCC radiography students who attended this year’s convention, accompanied by Professor Parsha Hobson and Professor Cheryl Morgan-Duncan.

Students who attend the annual conventions have the opportunity to network with others in the radiography field and to experience professional-level activities and workshops. This year’s program included presentations on a wide range of topics, including, Emerging Issues in Medical Imaging Profession, Aceing the Interview-Professional Life, and Radiographic Pathology.
