In this episode, Valerie P. Jackson, MD, executive director of the American Board of Radiology (ABR) and president of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) discusses her how her passion for breast imaging led to her serving in numerous leadership positions with national organizations including the ACR, SBI, SCARD and her current roles at the ABR and RSNA. She shares how a series of great mentors provided opportunities and reinforcement which helped her overcome her reluctance to lead and fueled her passion for education, research and volunteerism. You will hear how the lessons she learned from her job as a house keeper in a hospital, raising her son, and her love of photography has shaped her approach to leadership.
“When you have the time, get involved: whether it’s your own practice, your state ACR chapter or volunteering time at a nonmedical organization. The rewards from giving your time are far greater than the time you put in.”
