We are facing an unprecedented time, but we are a resilient community, and we will persevere. Many of you may be facing challenges navigating working from home while caring for your children. You may also be worried about friends and family, or your own physical and mental health. But perhaps most importantly, you are likely concerned about how COVID-19 will impact the health of the patients and communities we serve.
Yet I’m so inspired and sustained by the collaboration happening on our platforms, like Engage. I encourage you, if you haven’t already, to please join that community and keep in touch with us. Keep in touch with each other.
I’d like to highlight some of the latest radiology resources the American College of Radiology® (ACR®) is making available:
- We are regularly updating the COVID-19 Radiology-Specific Resources landing page with crucial information and guidance
- Radiology residents and fellows seeking further training can access an array of free assessments, programs and benefits via our Residency Training Hub
- The ACR CPI Chest Module is now available free for all ACR members
Additionally, your ACR Government Relations team is working furiously to ensure that whatever version of the relief bill goes forward does not include provisions that could impact your long term ability to provide care to your patients.
The ACR is here to support you throughout this rapidly evolving situation. Our radiology community is stronger together, even as we stay far apart.
