The ACR has partnered with Grace Children’s Hospital in Port-au-Prince, Haiti (click here and here), and sponsored its second radiology course - this one with a pediatric focus - on March 25 and 26, 2013. The course aimed to offer advice and guidance to physicians lacking access to pediatric imaging expertise.

 

The WFPI was invited to participate in the teaching; the WFPI team included 5 representatives: Drs. Ron Cohen, Marthe Munden, Jennifer Nicholas, Eva Rubio and Rebecca Stein-Wexler.
