Based on meritorious service to ASTRO and to the field of radiation oncology in general.
Dr. Mahesh Varia, Professor of Radiation Oncology, has been elected a 2007 ASTRO Fellow. Eligibility to receive the “FASTRO” designation is based on the length of Society membership and meritorious service to ASTRO and to the field of radiation oncology in general. Four possible pathways to becoming a Fellow – leadership/service, research, patient care and education – are considered. Dr. Varia will be honored in a special Fellows Induction Ceremony on October 30, 2007 during the upcoming 49th Annual Meeting of ASTRO in Los Angeles, CA. He joins Dr. Joel Tepper, Hector MacLean Distinguished Professor of Radiation Oncology, who became an ASTRO Fellow in 2006.
