Daily, almost hourly, the COVID-19 coronavirus is changing the world, our communities, and our lives. It's critical to have fact-based, current information from experts throughout this public health crisis. Here, we seek to provide a one-stop, go-to resource for our members, and the entire medical imaging community, with information you want, and the support you need. Please share any information, thoughts, or questions with us at memberservices@ahra.org, Contact Us, or, if you're a member, on Connect, our online forum for imaging leaders. If you are not currently a member but would like to be, or know someone who would benefit from the shared knowledge and community here, please join us. We are waiving the application fee right now. Check back, as we'll be updating this page often. Above all, stay well.
