ACR Staff Speak to Radiology Residents About the Importance of Advocacy

The American College of Radiology® (ACR®) last week provided a presentation to radiology residents at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medicine. Dillon Harp, ACR Senior State Government Relations Specialist, spoke about the importance of residency involvement in advocating for patients and the radiology profession during his presentation, “Advocacy 101.”

Harp discussed how residents’ participation in the advocacy process will shape the future of radiology. Residents learned about coordinating their advocacy activities with the ACR and their respective state radiological societies. Harp also gave the residents an overview of the resources that the ACR Government Relations Department offers.

For more information about ACR state government relations work, or if you would like your residency program to host the Advocacy 101 presentation, please contact Dillon Harp.

ACR members interested in getting involved in advocacy are encouraged to attend a webinar titled “How to Effectively Advocate for Your Patients and Profession,” July 14, by the Radiology Advocacy Network. For more information about this webinar, contact Melody Ballesteros.
