MAY
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 2017-2018
