2023 RAD-AID Conference on International Radiology and Global Health
The 15th annual RAD-AID Conference on International Radiology and Global Health is now open for registration. Our in-person conference event will be held on Saturday November 4th at George Washington University (Jack Morton Auditorium in the Media and Public Affairs Building at 805 21st Street, NW) in Washington DC.
This conference presents important topics and networking opportunities on global health outreach for radiology and radiation oncology in helping low and middle-income countries (LMICs) as well as medically underserved populations in high-income countries. Registration is currently available for in-person attendance.
Unable to attend in-person this year? We’ve got you covered! RAD-AID will be giving the option of virtual attendance for this year’s conference. Virtual attendees will still be eligible for CME/CE credits. More information will be dispersed as the date gets closer. Recordings will be sent out to ALL attendees, virtual and in-person. Please click here to register for the Virtual Conference.
Cancellation Policy: Refunds will be honored for cancelled registration up until October 1st, 2023.
The format of RAD-AID Conference includes ~25 short 15 minute presentations and panel discussions with audience comments/Q&A on global health radiology topics from around the world, covering strategies for increasing and improving health equity. Conference attendees include physicians, radiologic technologists, nurses, sonographers, medical physicists, IT-specialists, nonprofits, business managers, engineers, and public health specialists, for a robust interdisciplinary dialogue on global health equity.
Free breakfast and lunch are provided on-site, in addition to providing CME, CE, and Contact Hours for physicians, technologists, and nurses, respectively. The number of available credits will be announced later, pending approval by the CME/CE/Contact-Hour administration entities. As a guide, past RAD-AID Conferences have awarded 8-12 credits to in-person and virtual participants. RAD-AID Chapter Members will be able to participate in an interactive roundtable discussion for chapter governance, projects, and development on Sunday November 5th from 8:30am-12:30pm. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are a chapter member interested in attending the Roundtable and have not yet received the link to register.
