Connecticut Radiologists Honor ACRs Brandt

Eugenia Brandt, the American College of Radiology’s (ACR) director of state affairs, has been honored with a service award from the Radiological Society of Connecticut.

State Chapter President Alan Kaye, MD, FACR, presented the award to Brandt June 7 in recognition of her “consistent and outstanding service to the Connecticut chapter in state government relations issues.”

Since 2008, Brandt has assured the College’s government relations program takes a proactive approach to legislative and regulatory trends across the country by providing expert assistance to its affiliated chapters for state-level legislative and regulatory initiatives. 

Using StateScape, an online service available to all ACR members, Brandt monitors hundreds of radiology-related bills introduced in state legislatures while coordinating communication and developing resources that support government relations efforts pursued by the state chapters. She often works directly with the state associations, state American Medical Association chapters and other potential political allies to coordinate political advocacy strategies that benefit radiologists and their patients.

Eugenia’s colleagues at ACR headquarters in Reston, VA, and at the government relations office in Washington, DC, congratulate her for this honor.
