New President's Letter
I am writing a few weeks prior to our Executive Committee and International Assembly meetings at the European Congress of Radiology. The agenda items for the Ex Com meeting have been sent to the Ex Com members. The agenda for the International Assembly, to which representatives of all dues paying societies are welcome, includes the following reports: financial, president’s, ICRE, ICRQS, and the ICR 2016...
International Day of Radiology 2014
The ESR has launched a Thunderclap campaign for the International Day of Radiology. Thunderclap is a tool for amplifying a message on social media. By joining the thunderclap, you will share the same message at the same time as everyone else who has joined, which gives the message much more prominence and priority on social media feeds than individual, scattered posts. To sign up, you just need go to the IDoR Thunderclap page (https://www.thunderclap.it/projects/18203-international-day-of-radiology), choose whether you want to support via your Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr account (no Facebook pages though) and give Thunderclap permission to post automatically (just once) on your behalf. On November 8 (13:00 CET) the IDoR message will be automatically posted from your social media account at the same time as all other supporters. However, Thunderclap is an all-or-nothing campaign, which means that we need at least 100 supporters to sign up by 13:00 CET on November 8 in order for the message to actually be sent out, so any and all support is welcome. The more supporters we get, the more likely it is for the message to reach out beyond radiologists and into the wider public.
So please sign up and spread the word!
Some more news regarding the IDoR 2014:
- Participating societies have reached a record high with more than 120 societies from all over the world taking part.
- We have produced two new publications, 'The Story of Radiology Volume 3' and a book on brain imaging.
- We have conducted numerous interviews with experts from all over Europe and South America, which can now be found online.
