Many Hands Make for a Lighter Load

The past few days have been busy attending to some last minute logistical details for our program.  Radiology Education Days (RED) in Haiti could not have come together without the leadership of our program chair Rusty Brown, M.D., the chair of the ACR Foundation International Outreach Committee, Jim Borgstede, M.D., the eleven dedicated radiology professionals that volunteered to make the journey and present at the conference, the direct support of the SDMS and ASRT, the tireless efforts of our gracious hosts at ICC and Grace Children's Hospital, the generous contributions of Sonosite and GE, which provided loaner equipment to assist in hands-on training, and the dedicated and steadfast commitment of leadership and staff at the ACR. 

I will be speaking more directly about the contributions of these individuals and organizations in the days to come.  We are very excited about the interest in our program on the ground.  We currently are at capacity for the educational program and look forward to engaging our participants not only at the meeting but in the future as we work to assist radiology in Haiti.  We look forward to meeting and working with these dedicated professionals who seek to further their education as they seek to advance health care in Haiti. 

Tomorrow we begin our journey.  I will be reporting from Miami tomorrow evening and then from Haiti during our program.  I hope you will follow our journey.
