ACR Foundation Receives Donation from GE to Support Generations of Future Radiology Leaders
July 30, 2013
The American College of Radiology (ACR) Foundation announced today it has secured a significant donation from GE to support the Leading Radiology into the Future campaign. The gift will be used to further develop and strengthen the Radiology Leadership Institute (RLI) — radiology’s first professional development and leadership academy.
GE Chairman and CEO Jeff Immelt, honorary chair of the RLI campaign, said, “GE is proud to support the Radiology Leadership Institute because it impacts both health care quality and leadership development globally. The future of radiology depends on, not just advanced technology, but empowering the next generation of radiology leaders.”
The ACR Foundation seeks to raise $5 million during Phase I of the campaign, with over $3 million already raised towards this goal.
“The RLI is committed to providing radiologists with the superior leadership training they need. However, additional funding is needed to further develop and strengthen the RLI. I want to thank GE for making such a significant contribution to the RLI campaign, which will undoubtedly make a positive impact on the RLI and radiology’s future leaders,” said Paul H. Ellenbogen, MD, FACR, chair of the American College of Radiology Board of Chancellors.
