The newly announced RSNA Outstanding Community Impact Award will recognize an individual in the radiological sciences who has made exceptional contributions to patient care and health care delivery through service to the community. The inaugural award will be presented during the RSNA annual meeting in 2024.

“Promoting excellence in patient care and health care delivery is a key part of RSNA’s mission, and this award expands our ability to recognize outstanding colleagues in a variety of practice settings who are doing vital work in their communities,” said RSNA President Curtis P. Langlotz, MD, PhD.

Candidates will be identified through open nominations between March 18 and April 30. Nominees must be members of RSNA or AAPM who have demonstrated measurable impact on the community through their leadership and advocacy in the field of radiology. Strong candidates may have a history of enhancing patient care, developing new initiatives, or creating partnerships that resulted in a sustainable impact on the community. Eligible nominees will demonstrate a commitment to RSNA’s mission and values.

“We recognized that our current award structure highlights achievements traditional to academic medicine, such as publications, research and teaching,” said RSNA Board Liaison for Quality and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Jinel Scott, MD. “This award will honor individuals who have made significant impact in their communities, laying the foundation for people and communities to flourish.”

The Outstanding Community Impact Award Committee will review candidates and make recommendations to the RSNA Board of Directors, and the Board will select the final honoree.
