SPR Website Conversion
Important news for SPR members: the current SPR website will go down on 12/31/2013.
The newly envisioned website will launch within 24 hours of that event. However, some bugs are still being addressed so you may experience an interruption in your access to the online directory and other Members' Only content, such as the online journal. We apologize in advance should that occur and thank you for your patience.

It's a New Day for SPR and the SPR REF
You'll note that the SPR website has a new look today - August 15, 2013. Over the past 12 months the SPR and the SPR Research and Education Foundation Boards, led by Drs. Donald Frush, Sue Kaste and Brian Coley, responded to the need for the SPR and its Foundation to have a unified logo for the 21st century.
The new logo, which appears on this page today (you may have to clear your internet history if it does not appear in the banner) communicates both the warmth of the Society community and the strength of the members’ commitment to excellent and thoughtful care of the pediatric patient.
SPR had no logo from its inception in 1958 until 1985. In 1973, Dr. Webster Riggs, the author/editor of SPR's Newsletter, used the Pedi Rad Report design to the right.
In 1984-85, SPR President, Dr. Lionel Young, led the formal adoption of the 1st official SPR logo - to the left. The designer of the 1st logo was Ms. Tamar Oestreich.
In 2000, Dr. David Kushner, then President of the SPR Foundation, commissioned the Campaign for Children logo (right) , to be used in fundraising efforts.
3 editors - Shoulder-to-Shoulder
