A Sense of Belonging – From the ACR Bulletin


…”The power of our advocacy efforts is, in large part, based on our speaking with a unified voice for the benefit of our patients. As we think about how to engage as many radiologists as possible in advocacy efforts to amplify that voice, let us enjoy connecting with and learning from those who share our particular practice challenges or interests — but let us never lose sight of the common foundation we share as radiologists.”

It is that time of the year again: The March Chapter Challenge is now underway! The #marchchapterchallenge is an annual campaign to see which state chapter can rally the most members to contribute to RADPAC.

As the ACR’s political action committee, RADPAC makes sure that our voice and interests as residents, fellows, and future practicing radiologists are well represented in Washington. This, as you all know, is only becoming increasingly important as the healthcare debate continues to unfold into the next election cycle and beyond.

There is no minimum to contribute, and each contribution counts as 1 point, meaning that this is the chance for residents and fellows to make it really count for your state! Also, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of RADPAC, those who join the 20/20 campaign – $20 monthly donation until December of 2020 – will earn 2 points! More information regarding the 20/20 campaign can be found at

““Quality is our image” is the ACR’s tagline, and it applies at multiple levels described by the PFC. Quality patient-centered care includes ensuring the proper studies are performed at the right time. Our ability to effectively communicate those results to all stakeholders involved in care coordination is an important opportunity. Patients expect it.”
