It is was great enthusiasm that I step into the role of President of AARI in 2019. As a national organization AARI is in a distinctive position to share knowledge, education, and support to thousands of physician across Americans vast terrain and to its cultural diverse population. Our mission states is part AARI is "…to function as a venue for charitable, educational, cultural and networking activities, for members to share common ideas and discuss mutual concerns." To help further our mission, I would like to build on the extraordinary work of my predecessor Dr. Gaurang Shah and his dream to create an online database, accessed only by our members that would increase our connectivity and add to our strength. To make an effort to increase our membership so that more of us are able to connect and grow with each other. To strive to strengthen the bond that we have between radiology organizations in USA and India. And to expand our scope of the association by adding academic and advocacy components to our endeavors.
Please share your thoughts, ideas and suggestions with me, as we will all need to work together to expand and grow our exceptional organization and to serve our members to the best of our abilities.
I want to personally Thank all of you for your membership, support and contributions to not only AARI but to the fields of radiology and medicine.
