Registration Open for First All Member ACR Meeting in 2015

Gen. Colin L. Powell to keynote the event

August 1, 2014 — Registration is now open for ACR 2015 — the first American College of Radiology (ACR) all-member meeting — May 17-21, 2015, at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, D.C. Former U.S. Secretary of State and Joint Chief of Staff Chairman Gen. Colin L. Powell, USA (Ret.) will deliver the event’s keynote address on leadership.

ACR 2015 will present a diverse and flexible program with more than 100 concurrent sessions on leadership and clinical education, advocacy, economics, informatics, clinical and socioeconomic research, and quality and safety. Attendees can earn continuing medical education (CME) and self-assessment module (SAM) credits for maintenance of certification.

“As the Crossroads of Radiology, ACR 2015 is the perfect event for a time of great change in medicine. Professionals will come together to improve their business practices, advocacy efforts and clinical patient care. They will leave with a far better understanding of why they are ACR members or why they should be,” said ACR Chief Executive Officer William T. Thorwarth, Jr., M.D., FACR.

Powell, a statesman and retired four-star general in the U.S. Army, has received numerous U.S. Military awards and decorations. His civilian awards include two Presidential Medals of Freedom, the President's Citizens Medal and the Congressional Gold Medal. He serves on the board of directors at Revolution Health, a health-related portal site and social network that provides online tools to help people better manage their health. His remarks exemplify the tremendous content that ACR 2015attendees can expect.

“We are honored to have such a distinguished keynote speaker at our first all-member meeting. Gen. Colin L. Powell, USA (Ret.) will add to the knowledge and skills attendees gain at ACR 2015 to help them navigate and influence medical, economic and government trends shaping radiology’s future, to strengthen their practices and become better healthcare providers,” said Thorwarth.
