Keynote speaker Jeffrey R. Immelt, GE chairman and CEO, will discuss the future of digital innovation and leadership at the annual meeting of the American College of Radiology. “ACR 2017: The Crossroads of Radiology” will be held May 21–25 in Washington, DC.
“ACR 2017 provides an outstanding opportunity for attendees to glean strategies to navigate value-based medical imaging practice from the leader of one of the most successful industrial brands,” says James A. Brink, MD, FACR, chair of the ACR Board of Chancellors, who will moderate a question-and-answer session with Immelt.
Immelt has been named one of the “World’s Best CEOs” three times by Barron’s, and since he began serving as chief executive officer, GE has been named “America’s Most Admired Company” in a poll conducted by Fortune magazine and one of “The World’s Most Respected Companies” in polls by Barron’s and the Financial Times.
Jeffrey C. Bauer, PhD, health futurist and medical economist, will address “Forecasting Futures of Radiology at The Crossroads: It’s All Downhill From Here on Up” during the Moreton Lecture. This lecture was established in 1993 in recognition of the outstanding contributions to radiology and the medical profession by Robert D. Moreton, MD.
The 5-day meeting offers more than 100 hours of sessions on advocacy, economics, health policy, leadership, clinical education, informatics, clinical research, ACR governance, quality and safety, plus special sessions for medical students, residents, fellows and early-career physicians. Special events include Speed Mentoring, Capitol Hill Day, with exclusive meetings scheduled for members to bring the “Voice of Radiology” to elected officials, and the MSK Boot Camp.
