ACR Representatives to Assist with Radiology Training and Education During Upcoming Visit to Haiti
ACR International Outreach Committee Chairman James Borgstede, MD, ACR Board of Chancellors Vice Chairman Paul Ellenbogen, MD, and ACR Senior Director of Membership Brad Short will travel to Haiti this week to help with ongoing efforts to assist radiology in Port-au-Prince. During their trip they will develop a support plan for Grace Children’s Hospital and the General Hospital (Haiti’s university and educational hospital) to assist with radiological equipment, training and education.
The ACR launched the Haiti Radiology Relief Fund immediately after the earthquake ravaged Port-au-Prince in the winter of 2010.
