Radiologic technology students Dixon, Solak earn leadership certificates

Two Midwestern State Radiologic Technology graduate students have completed a leadership program conducted by the Texas Society of Allied Health Professionals. Camille Khan Solak and Natasha Dixon earned certificates from the TSAHP’s Student Leadership Development Program.

Solak and Dixon are currently pursuing their Master of Science in Radiologic Science Administration degrees from The Shimadzu School of Radiologic Sciences at the Robert D. & Carol Gunn College of Health Sciences and Human Services at MSU Texas.

“These passionate radiology professionals were selected because of their interest in pursuing leadership opportunities in radiology management,” said Lynette Watts, Associate Professor of Radiologic Sciences. “They worked with a total of 10 students in various allied health professions to complete the seven-month program virtually.”

Topics observed included leadership styles, health care leadership issues in the age of COVID-19, addressing diversity in health care settings, effective communication strategies, and a variety of other leadership challenges facing modern health care.

 “We congratulate Camille and Natasha on a great accomplishment and look forward to their success in the radiologic sciences profession in the future,” Watts said.

Dixon works at UT Health Pittsburg in Pittsburg, Texas. Solak is at Irwin Army Community Hospital in Fort Riley, Kansas.

The TSAHP is a professional organization dedicated to enhancing and promoting education, research, and clinical practice of allied health professionals within the state.
