How is diversity and inclusion in radiology improving?
“ Just take a look at current ACR leadership makeup from the BOC to the RFS. Consider how well the #HeForShe campaign has done. And look at how social media is raising awareness about diversity in radiology — it’s bringing radiologists together for each other and for patient care.”
– Taj Kattapuram, MD, breast and interventional radiologist in Arvada, Colo.
“ We must continue to hold ourselves accountable and not fall victim to our unconscious biases. The goal is to make sure we create as level a playing field as possible for all who want to take part in our wonderful specialty.”
— Vivek Kalia, MD, MPH, MS, musculoskeletal radiologist
at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor
“ At our institution, our program director is closely involved with college-wide diversity efforts and specifically brings in local students from underrepresented groups to shadow in the reading room and get a glimpse of radiology.”
– Zachary S. Jeng, MD, diagnostic radiology resident at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston
