Dear Members, Students and Visitors:


Words cannot describe how thankful I am to have been bestowed the honor of serving as the Illinois State Society President. I have been a member of AMT and involved ILSSAMT since 2010. Looking back, it is amazing how quickly time flies! I am extremely grateful to have met and worked alongside of a plethora of amazing people at both the state and national levels over these past years. I remember attending my very first National Meeting in Las Vegas, Nevada. The first person I met was a member from Oklahoma – Lia Kay Spears. I can honestly say, my encounter with her inspired my continued attendance of the National Meetings and my drive to remain active with my state society. Lia introduced me to many members whom had attended these meetings for many years. Each explaining how they looked forward to being with old friends and also the prospect of meeting new ones each year. For some, it became a yearly family vacation where family members could enjoy state attractions while AMT members acquired CEUs, networked and participated in committees. Her kindness and mentorship meant all the world to me. This simple act helped to propel me to where I am today in AMT and ILSSAMT. This is what I would like to offer Illinois members, the opportunity to experience the deep embrace of this organization.

ILSSAMT welcomed, nurtured and helped me grow as a professional. My goal is to continue the great work that Nancy Gabl started, to build and refine the Illinois State Society. It has always been her quest to lead the organization progressively to newer heights and to make a difference in health care.  Working in Higher Education, increasing student participation has also been extremely important. In keeping with the spirit of Nancy’s goals, I would like to raise the awareness of current allied health students to keep them informed of opportunities which lie ahead through organizational affiliations, networking and volunteerism.  This also applies to the Allied Health Instructors. Our society needs your active participation at both the state and national levels. By attending meetings, and serving as officers, board members or active committee members and chairs, we can set the example for our students.  


I am truly looking forward to seeing what this year brings! Don’t be surprised if you receive a random email or call from me as I am set on reaching as many members as possible to increase participation!


This year our National Educational Program and Business meeting will be in Washington July. If you are interested in being a delegate please let me know. Please go to to register. Early registration is discounted substantially. I am looking forward to a great year and thank you to you all for letting me serve as your state president.



Very truly yours,

Asiyah Jafary, RMA (AMT), CPT (NPA)

ILSSAMT President and State Editor
