Leesburg, VA, June 8, 2020–In recent months, the COVID-19 epidemic has thrown into sharp relief the inequities that remain pervasive in America’s health care system for people of color–particularly African Americans. Simultaneously, in Brunswick, Georgia, Louisville, Kentucky, and, most recently, Minneapolis, Minnesota, our nation witnesses the subsistence of racial injustice across our communities.
As the oldest radiology society in North America, the American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS) remains committed to the impartial advancement of medical imaging and its allied sciences for everyone, everywhere. As Nelson Mandela said, “It always seems impossible until it’s done.”
Now more than ever, as a forum for progress since the discovery of the x-ray, ARRS reaffirms its mission of improving health through a true community of allies dedicated to the progression of knowledge, skills, and quality care for all.
