As President of the Chicago Radiological Society (CRS), I would like to warmly welcome you to our 2015-2106 meeting season! We have a wonderful slate of speakers lined up this year courtesy of Program Director Vanessa Wear, MD. With Jonathan Strauss, MD continuing as Secretary/Treasurer and newly President-elect, our chapter’s governance is in good hands. I would also like to thank Alex Nemeth, MD, our immediate Past-President, for leading us through the 2014-2015 season.
We are proud to serve as a chapter of the Illinois Radiological Society under the American College of Radiology. We strive to fulfill our chapter’s role to provide professional involvement and educational opportunities for Radiology residents, fellows, and practicing Radiologists. Additionally, we are involved in state and local governmental legislation and issues as they pertain to the specialty of Radiology. With the uncertainty of the Affordable Care Act and reimbursement issues, CRS continues to provide members important updates in a timely fashion and offers means for communication with the ACR.
I sincerely hope that you will join us for our monthly meetings and experience how CRS can help you in your practice. If you are a resident or fellow, I hope that you find the meetings to be a valuable addition to your academic training. If you are a practicing radiologist, I hope that you will come visit us and see how the CRS can help you in your practice.
Thank you and welcome to CRS 2015!
Kenneth L. Pierce, MD
