New Grants Target Emerging, Urgent Needs
The R&E Foundation announces two new Emerging Issues grant opportunities aimed at addressing timely and urgent health crises. Emerging Issues grants are designed to ensure that the current and next generation of radiologists are able to meet the needs of their evolving profession and its patients.
Interventions/Solutions to Health Care Disparities
This grant supports capacity-strengthening activities to improve radiologists’ ability to address issues affecting health care disparity. This research should identify issues and develop solutions to achieve better outcomes that provide equitable care for all.
Long-Term Effects of COVID-19
This grant supports research to learn why some people have prolonged symptoms, often referred to as “long COVID,” or develop new or returning symptoms after the acute phase of COVID-19 infection.
The application deadline for both grants is Aug. 1.
Upcoming Spotlight Courses Focus on Women’s Imaging, Careers
Registration is open for two upcoming RSNA Spotlight Courses. The courses are developed by global experts and offer practical insights on essential topics for medical imaging professionals.
Women’s Imaging Issues
Aug. 12-13 in Bogotá, Colombia
RSNA experts discuss what’s new in imaging and oncologic disease of the pelvic organs. This interactive two-day course features challenging collaborative cases sessions, key point lectures and updated risk scales in women’s imaging. This course will be conducted in Spanish.
Navigating Early Career Radiology: Skills for Success and Advancement
Sept. 16-17 in Nashville, Tennessee
