Advocating for the Profession: They’ve shown a substantial commitment to the profession by leading a volunteer effort or by achieving significant accomplishments while volunteering.

Liberty Adair, M.H.A., M.S.R.S. R.T.(R)(ARRT), L.V.N., is the Imaging Center Supervisor at Hillcrest Imaging Center, part of Baylor Scott and White Health in Waco, Texas. She advocates for the profession by leading and taking part in an extraordinary number of volunteer activities. An expert in bone health, Adair supports American Bone Health in holding community wellness programs. There, she teaches elderly adults and adults who have disabilities about bone density, osteoporosis, and the importance of bone density imaging. Adair also staffs a bone health table at For Women For Life, a free annual event for women. In addition, she discusses the radiologic technologist profession with students in elementary, middle, and high school. Adair is working on her Ph.D. in health services; her dissertation examines physician and hospital collaboration on reducing fragility fractures in at-risk adults.

Elizabeth Krcik, B.S., R.T.(T)(ARRT), is a Radiation Therapist at Mercy Hospital in downtown Chicago. Previously she was a Radiation Therapist at Northwestern Medicine Chicago Proton Center (NMCPC) in Warrenville, Illinois. She has a strong interest in research, which to date has focused on NMCPC’s unique vertical CT scanner and on the safety of proton treatments for men who have prostate cancer. Krcik pioneered an immobilization method that enables patients with lung cancer to sit upright for CTs, thereby decreasing respiratory motion, elongating the lungs, and improving patient comfort. Future uses might include treatments for the abdomen. Krcik has published in the peer-reviewed journal Radiation Therapist and has presented at the American Society of Radiologic Technologists national conference and the Particle Therapy Cooperative Group—North America conference.
