A Message from the President - May, 2017

Dear Members, Colleagues and Friends of the SAR,
I would first like to thank the immediate past President Bill Mayo-Smith for leading us all through the last year of continued growth, energy and innovation in the Society. Under Bill’s leadership the SAR continues to go from strength to strength. It’s remarkable but we have doubled our Society members over the last three years to over 1200. This really is a reflection of the vision developed by our prior leaders at both SUR and SGR and realized in 2012 with the merging of the Societies such that we can now scale and harmonize our activities, thinking and friendships. This was reflected in the spectacular meeting we just held at the Diplomat Resort in Hollywood, Florida this past March. While every SAR meeting is a truly rewarding experience, the immediate feedback was that this SAR meeting offered not just up-to-date meaningful and practical educational content but enhanced our understanding of leadership, mentorship and practice management, all of which are key to our success in the rapidly and perpetually changing healthcare environment... Click here to read more!

The SAR Remembers Dr. Rich Baron

It is with great sadness that, as many of you have probably heard, Rich Baron died suddenly and unexpectedly this past Thursday (May 4). Rich was a mentor to us all, a giant in Radiology and a truly warm and remarkable person, too. He was a friend and colleague to every person in our Society. It's hard to imagine how our specialty and SAR will be without him. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Shirley and his two children at this difficult time. We will always miss him.
~Giles Boland, SAR President
