Call for Theda Sannit Award Nominations Now Open  

The Theda Sannit Outstanding Education Award was established in 1990 by the Philadelphia Regional EEG Technologists Association and the Eastern Society of EEG Technologists to honor Theda’s accomplishments and contributions to EEG. The award was first presented to Theda Sannit herself. In 1992, ASET continued the award on a national basis, recognizing outstanding educators in the field of neurodiagnostics.

  • Professional contributions in the areas of publications, teaching/training, and/or educational development 
  • Demonstration of educational expertise in both national and regional society involvement, such as directing programs, providing instruction, and creating training materials
