Melinda Bender, BS, RDMS, RVT


I will make a difference to SVU and the profession by…

“Adding a new voice with twenty years of experience. I feel we can motivate newer technologists to become more engaged in the society through encouragement and opportunity. In my personal career I have successfully engaged 15% of our staff to take a more active role. This number continues to increase yearly. My wish is to ensure that all vascular technologist have a voice and feel valued for the vital contribution they make to our field. I wish to enhance the educational opportunities we provide to all sonographers with a passion for vascular. We should provide more information on reading and correlating other modalities to provide better care for our patients. I wanted to hear the wants and desires of the technologists on what would better serve their needs.”
