ACRF New Global Humanitarian Awards Deadline Approaching

The deadline to submit applications is Dec. 31, 2014

October 15, 2014 – Individuals and organizations providing or increasing access to quality radiological services for patients in low- to middle-income countries and underserved areas of the United States are encouraged to apply for the American College of Radiology Foundation’s (ACRF) new Global Humanitarian Awards. Award applicants may either be self-nominated or nominated by a peer.

“These awards recognize individuals and organizations for their humanitarian efforts while focusing attention on the ongoing need for radiological services around the globe,” said Douglas “Rusty” Brown, M.D., chair of the American College of Radiology Foundation’s International Outreach Committee.

Awards will be given in three distinct categories, including:

• Individual radiologists

• Organizations (including non-profit and industry groups)

• Non-radiologists (including medical physicists, radiologic technologists, ultrasonographers and other radiological personnel) Three award winners will be chosen and recognized at ACR 2015, the all-new annual meeting of the American College of Radiology.


The deadline to submit applications is Dec. 31, 2014.
