A Message from the President

Dear SAR members, colleagues and anyone else who wandered to the site,

It’s been more than a few months since I took office and I have neglected to keep my President’s letter up to date. But please do not fear that it is because I have nothing to report; quite the contrary—the board, committee members and the staff have all been quite busy. Here is just a sampling of what we've been up to since the last Annual Meeting:  The SAR visited Veracruz, Mexico for the 2014 International Educational Conference; John Leyendecker has roamed the earth as our visiting professor; Disease-focused panels are taking off!; and a new membership category has been created: Fellowship Member in Training.  
Here’s just a bit of what you have to look forward to me reporting in the months’ ahead: Selection of the next visiting professor and next team to travel as part of the IEC; Announcement of the nomination of the next board member; Start of 2 new groups: the Training Education Committee and the Association of Program Directors in Abdominal Radiology; and announcement of research awards .... 
There is so much more to be said about all of this - You do not want to miss it!
