Increasing the Diversity of Radiologic Technologists at Cincinnati Children’s

Cincinnati Children’s strives to promote the entrance of minorities into the field of Radiology and increase the diversity of Registered Radiologic Technologists at the hospital and in our community by offering the Jean Turner Minority Scholarship for Radiologic Technology.

The scholarship awards a selected candidate a maximum of $5000 per year for two years toward completion of an accredited radiologic technologist program. This year’s recipient is Sharita Bone.
