RAD-AID Conference on International Radiology and Global Health
Each year since 2009, RAD-AID holds a conference on international radiology and global health equity to cultivate dialog and solutions to worldwide healthcare disparities. Our annual conference is an opportunity to hear short presentations on RAD-AID programs from over 40 countries on building and sustaining life-saving radiology and radiation oncology services for those in need. You can also network with other radiology and medical imaging professionals at our forum on global health equity topics. This year’s in-person conference was at the George Washington University, in the Jack Morton Auditorium (Media and Public Affairs Building) in Washinton DC, on Saturday, November 4th 2023.
RAD-AID Conference brings together nongovernmental humanitarian organizations, academic medical centers, government, and businesses with individuals of all backgrounds such as medical specialists, radiology professionals, public health officials, technology engineers, economists, etc., in order to discuss ways to increase and improve radiology for medically underserved populations. You can review our prior year conference summaries.
Conference presentations include global community service programs, educational methods, clinical imaging strategies, economic development, technology innovations, and public health approaches for building radiology in low-resource communities. Themes and topics are also intended for interested residents, students, practicing health personnel, and health care administrators/leaders. Each presentation and panel discussion has interactive audience Q/A. Poster presentations, technology demonstrations, and program information-tables are accessible to you during RAD-AID Conference so that you can directly talk with our program leaders and partners. We provide CME, CE, and Contact Hours credits for physicians, radiologic technologists/sonographers, and nurses, respectively (pending approval from the accreditation entities), in which past RAD-AID Conferences offered 8-12 credits for a full day of educational presentations.
The annual meeting also enables RAD-AID Chapter members to meet and discuss projects through a small-group meeting format. There is a dedicated RAD-AID Chapters Roundtable on Sunday, November 5th for half-day session to discuss chapter strategies, grants, and project opportunities.
