A Message from the President of the Canadian Radiological Foundation – Together we advance Canadian Radiology for the future

Ian Hammond, MD, FRCPC, FACR
December 2014

The end of the year is nearly upon us and, as President of the Canadian Radiological Foundation (CRF), I invite you to make a tax-deductible donation for 2014 to the CRF to enable us to continue to advance the art and science of radiology in Canada. This work would not be possible without the generous contributions of our donors.
 
I take this opportunity to thank those of you who have already donated to the CRF. Your contributions have allowed the CRF to fund the following projects in 2014:


Research Studies

Canadian Association of Radiologists (CAR) Annual Scientific Meeting Awards

Archives

The CRF has initiated a project to catalogue, stabilize and preserve the archival materials (textual and visual records, sound recordings and artifacts) at the CAR office. It is important to document the history of our association and the practice of radiology in Canada to ensure it remains available for future generations of radiologists.
 
In addition to continuing the above projects, the CRF, in conjunction with the CAR, will be funding new and exciting scholarships as of 2015.


Leadership Scholarships from the Canadian Association of Radiologists (CAR) and the Canadian Radiological Foundation (CRF) – NEW!

The CAR and the CRF recognize that to play a meaningful role in shaping the future of health care, it is critical for radiologists to obtain the necessary leadership skills that will enable them to stay at the forefront of the most important issues in health care. As such, the CAR and CRF will be offering two scholarships to attend the annual Leadership Summit in August 2015. This leadership program is provided by the Radiology Leadership Institute (RLI) of the American College of Radiology (ACR).Watch for more information in early 2015!
 
At this time of the year, as you think about your year-end donations, please remember the CRF to allow us to fund additional important projects. Tax-deductible donations to the CRF can be made by: Canadian Radiological Foundation
c/o Canadian Association of Radiologists
600-294 Albert Street
Ottawa, ON  K1P 6E6
 
We greatly appreciate your support, and hope to count on your donation as we work with you towards promoting radiology research and education in 2015 and beyond.
 
Warmest wishes to you and your family for the upcoming holiday season.
 
Please feel free to communicate with me through the CAR office at crf@car.ca with ideas for the Foundation.
