The American Society for Radiation Oncology selected 17 members to receive the ASTRO fellows designation.
The designees will be recognized during a ceremony at ASTRO’s 57th annual meeting, scheduled for Oct. 18-21 in San Antonio.
ASTRO fellows designation honors individuals who have been an active or emeritus member of ASTRO for at least 15 years, given the equivalent of 10 years of service to ASTRO, and significantly added to the field of radiation oncology in the areas of research, education, patient care or service and leadership.
ASTRO has recognized 259 fellows since 2006.
“The 17 fellows chosen this year have demonstrated their dedication to the field of radiation oncology. Their work has impacted and benefited patients and the field of radiation oncology in a variety of ways, including patient care, research, education, service and leadership,” Bruce G.
