Chris is a graduate of St. Joseph’s University (MS, Instructional Technology 2010), Penn State University (AS, Radiological Sciences, 2005), and West Chester State University (BS, Exercise Science, 1984), with prior experience in health care business (1989-2003). Chris’ synthesis of unique complimentary experiences provides him with the unique perspective, skills and knowledge necessary to manageRAD-AID's Instructional Technology Systems, including the RAD-AID Learning Center.
Chris began professional life in the field of Exercise Science, designing conditioning programs for clients including internationally recognized entertainers, Olympic and professional athletes. Soon thereafter, Chris leveraged his business skills to become president and co-founder of a company specializing in performance assessment technology. Years later, Chris became vice president of a private television network, helping it become a leading source of fully accredited medical education.
Almost 20 years after graduating with his Bachelors degree, Chris entered the Radiologic Sciences program in 2003 at Penn State University with a new sense of purpose and direction. While there Chris was selected to participate in the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) Student Intern Program. Chris was also invited to participate on the Pennsylvania State Radiologic Technology Board, eventually becoming President-Elect. Upon graduation with honors (2005), Chris immediately entered the cardiac catheterization lab and quickly earned the Registered Cardiovascular Invasive Specialist certification (2006) and the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists Cardiac-Interventional certification (2007).
Chris has been a consultant on the ARRT’s Cardiac-Interventional Examination committee since 2008. His book reviews have been published in Journal of the American Society of Radiologic Technologists and he has shared insight into his specialty in his writing for the ASRT’s Scanner Magazine. As a member of the ASRT’s Committee on R.T. Advocacy, Chris is responsible for disseminating information from the ASRT Government Relations Department to his regional network. Chris’ speaking activities have included presentations to Society of Radiographers (Jamaica), Pennsylvania Society of Radiologic Technologists and most recently the The Pan American Health Organization / World Health Organization’s IX Regional Congress of Health Information.
Chris' post-graduate work in Instructional Technology, which included a virtual internship with the ASRT, focused on increasing access to education in the developing world. In an effort to gain further insight into the challenges of health care workers in the underserved areas, Chris completed much of his graduate education while living in Kingston, Jamaica. While there, Chris served as Clinical Service Lines Manager for a cardiovascular disease center dedicated to preventing and treating heart and blood vessel diseases through appropriate use of leading-edge technology, research and education. Chris has also assisted the World Health Imaging, Telemedicine & Informatics Alliance assess the impact of x-ray equipment in South Africa and has worked with the International Society of Radiographers reviewing proposals for 2012 World Congress.
