RADxx Opens Nominations for 2nd Annual Radiology Leadership Awards Program for Women

August 23, 2018 — RAD Women (#RADxx), a networking group for the advancement of women in radiology and imaging informatics, announced the opening of nominations for the 2018 RADxx Awards. The RADxx awards recognize the achievements of women in the field of medical imaging informatics, as well as anyone — both men and women — who have supported the career advancement of women in medical imaging informatics.

The RADxx awards were launched in 2017, and winners were announced at a cocktail reception at the 2017 Radiological Society of North America annual meeting (RSNA 2017). Since then, RADxx has continued to build its resource library, hosted multiple Cocktails for Change receptions and run Tweet Chats that saw over 4.7 million impressions.

The RADxx Awards will honor four outstanding individuals who have helped to lead the way or are emerging fresh voices in medical imaging informatics. The categories include:

  • RADxx Trailblazer: Recognizes a pioneering woman leader in informatics who has been in the field for at least 10 years;
  • RADxx Advocate: Open to both men and women who have helped support and further the advancement of women in imaging informatics;
  • RADxx Champion: The RADxx Champion award recognizes individuals who have helped to sponsor the career development of women in medical imaging informatics; and
  • RADxx Rising Star: Recognizes the next generation of women leaders in imaging informatics.

Those interested in applying may do so from now until Nov. 10, 2018 at http://radxx.ambrahealth.com/awards. Eligible individuals could be physicians or work in the field in other roles such as administration or information technology (IT).

Award winners will be selected by the RADxx executive committee from eligible submissions. RADxx Awards recipients will be announced at a cocktail reception during the 2018 RSNA annual conference, Nov. 25-30 in Chicago.

“Recognizing the contributions of #radxx leaders and the #radxy sponsors who are often critical to their success is so important. If we can celebrate rising stars and role models, then I'm confident we can inspire more women to enter the field of imaging informatics,” said Geraldine McGinty, M.D., MBA, FACR, RADxx co-founder and chief strategy and contracting officer, Weill Cornell Medicine Physician Organization.

RADxx is an initiative sponsored by Ambra Health and founded in 2016 by McGinty and Mini Peiris to foster networking and mentorship opportunities for women leaders in radiology, informatics, and IT management of imaging systems. With over 100 women and men in the group, RADxx seeks to address the underrepresentation of women in imaging informatics. The founding team has expanded into a steering committee for the initiative that includes Amy Kotsenas, M.D., consultant, Department of Radiology and associate professor of radiology, Mayo Clinic, and Tessa Cook, M.D., Ph.D., director, 3-D and advanced imaging, laboratory director, Center for Translational Informatics and assistant professor of radiology at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.
