The CRF Board gathered in Ottawa in October 2018 for a landmark facilitated strategic planning session. The resultant five-year plan aims to solidify our position as an effective, responsive not-for-profit organization, supporting imaging research, innovation and education in Canada and beyond, whilst demonstrating best practices in raising funds.
We said goodbye with sincere thanks to two Board Directors who served the Board with distinction, Drs. Ian Hammond and Robert Sevick, and welcomed Drs. Andrea Lum and David Vickar.
The CRF supported all scientific contest prizes at CAR 2018, enhanced its collaboration with the Canadian Heads of AcademicRadiology (CHAR) in national support of research, and offered the second module of the business leadership course in radiology, on negotiation strategies. Our sincere thanks to all donors, and to the CAR staff for their ongoing commitment.
Please consider becoming part of the CRF 500 Club and donating to the future of radiology in Canada. Your financial support is essential to keep our programs going – and growing. The coming year promises to be a very exciting one as the foundation continues its commitment in investment in imaging, intervention, informatics and artificial intelligence education and research.
