    RSNA Staff Retirement

    Earlier this year, RSNA said goodbye to an employee with more than 30 years’ worth of service to the Society and particularly the annual meeting scientific and education program.

    Betty Rohr, 36 years

    Betty RohrIn 1978, Betty Rohr was living in a small country town in Pennsylvania and working for a member of the RSNA Board of Directors, the late Theodore A. Tristan, M.D., who was retiring as chair of the Department of Radiology at Polyclinic Medical Center in Harrisburg. Rohr had gotten to know many radiologists and RSNA staff through Dr. Tristan, so when the Society decided to move from Syracuse, N.Y., to Oak Brook, Ill., then-RSNA Executive Director Adele Swenson recruited Rohr to come for six months and help hire staff and set up the new office.

    Eager to experience city life, Rohr jumped at the offer. “I stayed 70 times longer than six months,” Rohr noted at her retirement on Jan. 31, 2014.

    During her tenure at RSNA, Rohr served as assistant to the executive director and in a variety of director roles overseeing program services, administration, membership, related societies and data management. She most recently served as director of program services, survey research and program evaluation, and academic management services.

    Much of Rohr’s influence has been felt in the annual meeting scientific and education program, which she helped Society volunteers create each year by managing the processes of abstract solicitation and review and coordinating meetings of various committees focused on scientific sessions, education exhibits, refresher courses and more.

    “I can’t express in a couple sentences what Betty Rohr has meant to the RSNA,” said 2012 RSNA President George S. Bisset III, M.D., who worked closely with Rohr as chair of the RSNA Scientific Program Committee, and as RSNA Board Liaison for Education. “During the eight years I worked closely with Betty on the Scientific Program Committee she was the heart and soul of our group. She always had the answers. Betty is one of few employees I have known who is worthy of the term ‘irreplaceable.’”

    “Rohr’s impact on Dr. Bisset is but one example of the indelible marks she left on her fellow staff members and the hundreds of volunteers with whom she worked,” said Linda B. Bresolin, Ph.D., M.B.A., CAE, RSNA Assistant Executive Director for Science and Education.

    “By shaping the educational and scientific components of the RSNA Annual Meeting and Scientific Assembly, Betty has also influenced the way radiology is practiced around the world,” Bresolin said.
