In his President’s Address, Dr. Mauro will explore how radiology professionals can be intentional and proactive while guiding teams and organizations through change. “In health care, we are not only experiencing change in the medical sciences and technologic innovations that are occurring with increasing frequency, but also in the many aspects of the delivery of care—payment models, patient expectations, delivery systems, competition—as well as an unstable labor market,” Dr. Mauro said. “And radiology is well poised to continue its leadership in moving health care forward across all of these domains.”
