SAN MATEO, Calif., Nov. 20, 2020—Two annual Gurnick-RadNet Scholarships were awarded Thursday, June 18, 2020, at Gurnick Academy of Medical Arts’ Sacramento campus. The award, established in 2019, seeks to reward “RadNet employees in good standing, who have demonstrated the desire, commitment, and ability to further their education, “ said Chris Gordon, VP of Operations for RadNet Organization’s Northern division.
The 2019 Gurnick-Radnet educational scholarship recipient was Christina Sanchez, a Patient Services Representative, who has worked with RadNet for over 13 years in the Sacramento office. This year, she enrolled in Gurnick’s Associate of Science in Radiologic Technology program and began coursework on July 6 at the Sacramento campus. Sanchez voiced her desire to enroll in the program because she became “fascinated with how the human body works” as part of her radiology fieldwork.
Sanchez loves knowing that the radiographs she produces “help diagnose patients and get them one step closer to recovery.” Of the award, Sanchez remarked, “This opportunity is incredibly life-changing for me. It is allowing me to further my education and build a future with my husband. I am so lucky to have RadNet supporting me, as they have throughout the years, and lucky to have been selected.”
The recipient of the 2020 Gurnick-Radnet educational scholarship was Kelli Oberto, a Patient Services Representative and Mammography Tech Aide, who has worked for over two years in RadNet’s Valley Radiology Samaritan office. Oberto was nominated for the scholarship and has now enrolled in the Associate of Science in Radiologic Technology program at the Concord campus. Oberto stated she wanted to go into the program because she has “always been interested in the medical field and the human body” and loves to “take pictures.” As “an X-Ray tech, I will be able to be involved in both daily.”
