ASU and CARTI partner up to help students

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – Two Arkansas education institutions have teamed up to enhance their students' opportunities.

CARTI, a non-profit radiation therapy treatment and education program in Little Rock, and Arkansas State University have partnered to provide enhanced education opportunities to those who will treat cancer patients.

Tracy White, Program Director of ASU's radiation therapy program says students will gain a lot from the union. "They will have access to some things that maybe they aren't seeing in clinics in this area.  If there's something that Little Rock is offering or a different treatment modality that they may be offering then we will be able to let our students travel down there and see something that maybe they're not seeing in this area." White said.

The Chair of the ASU Medical Imaging and Radiation Science Department, Ray Winters, calls this partnership a "win-win" situation. "For CARTI, they get to offer the baccalaureate degree through an easy articulation process that we've negotiated for their students.  And then for our students, the possibility exists for expanded clinical sites and expanded educational opportunities," Winters said.

CARTI, which stands for Central Arkansas Radiation Therapy Institute, has centers in North Little Rock, Conway, Searcy and Mountain Home.
