RIT Professor Profiled in Marquis Who’s Who in America
Hamad Ghazle makes the list in 2009
Hamad Ghazle has been selected to be included in the 2009 edition of Who’s Who in America, published by Marquis. Ghazle is an associate professor and director of the diagnostic medical sonography program in the College of Science at Rochester Institute of Technology.
Who’s Who is a biographical reference that publishes the profiles of the highest achievers and contributors in a variety of fields including politics, business, education and medicine. Selected individuals are nominated and their credentials reviewed by a committee. Ghazle says that the process took about two months before his selection was confirmed.
“It’s greatly appreciated,” says Ghazle. “It’s nice to have this thing, to be in Who’s Who, and know that somebody thinks of you that way.
“It makes you think to yourself, ‘perhaps I am making a difference’.”
Ghazle, a resident of Spencerport, is the president of the Rochester Ultrasound Society and a former Eisenhart teaching award winner. He has a bachelor’s degree in ultrasound from RIT and has been on the faculty for 14 years. He also has a master’s in health professions from University of Rochester and completed his doctorate in higher education in 2008 from UR.
Marquis Who’s Who has been around since 1899 and is used mostly in libraries as a research tool enabling users to look up biographical profiles.
