FROM THE AAWR PRESIDENT

Dear AAWR Members,

On October 5, the AAWR began its membership renewal process (Join AAWR) with the free membership for the rest of 2021 campaign.  Our membership is the highest it has been in the past five years, and the 50% membership increase in 2021 (second year in a row) is exciting; hopefully, the momentum will continue. Nevertheless, we are missing many women and allies in radiology, and I hope you will join me in encouraging them to join the AAWR.  The American College of Radiology represents nearly 40,000 diagnostic radiologists, radiation oncologists, interventional radiologists, nuclear medicine physicians, and medical physicists. The advancement of women in radiology affects every one of them, so there are many potential members to recruit. ~  Read More
