Letter from the President.
I would like to personally extend my sincere and heartfelt welcome to all members of the Long Island radiology community, and I invite you to join and be an active participant in our Long Island Radiology Society. Our members come from a wide range of backgrounds, with broad and varied experiences, both in the academic as well as in the private sectors. We also have a large and integral contingent of residents, fellows and even medical students who regularly attend our meetings. We provide an ongoing forum of discussion on relevant and timely topics, given by invited regional as well as internationally renowned speakers. Additionally, the LIRS hosts an annual mammography conference for radiologists and technologists, in conjunction with the Stony Brook School of Medicine, demonstrating our continued commitment to the diagnosis and state of the art treatment of breast disease.
We hold up to six lectures throughout the year, divided between the fall and spring. All but one are held at the beautiful Woodbury Country Club, a central location with charming landscaped grounds. Cocktail hour, held at 6:00 p.m., is an ideal opportunity to network and meet fellow colleagues and residents. A formal address begins at 7:00 p.m., beginning with a series of challenging test questions, geared toward residents in training. Once a year we rotate at a new location, and in April we will meet at the Milleridge Inn, in Jericho. In addition to having a great opportunity to make new friends and acquaintances, the participant will be able to obtain CME credit.
The LIRS is committed to work ceaselessly on your behalf, to face new and ongoing challenges that reflect the ever changing political climate. When you join us, you have the opportunity to let your voice be heard. Let us bravely encounter these obstacles together. We strongly encourage participation on our executive committee, so you can more play a role in influencing issues of most concern. Your involvement and attendance is crucial to our continued success. We hope to see you soon, and we look forward to your participation in future years.
Steven Lev, M.D.
LIRS President (2017-2018)
