President's Message

Dear Colleague,

On behalf of the AUR Research and Education Foundation, I invite you to contribute to the future of academic radiology. The mission of the AUR R&E Foundation is to promote research, education and scholarship in academic radiology. Dr_ApplegateThis will be accomplished through awarding grants, fellowships, stipends and other financial support to individuals, groups and organizations.

In 2011, The M.R. and Evelyn Hudson Foundation put forward a Challenge Grant to our membership to increase the numbers of members that donate to our Research and Education Foundation. We are thrilled to report that we have met the challenge.

One of the other ongoing ventures undertaken by the Foundation is a collaboration between the AUR, APDR, SCARD and RSNA to institute an educational research grants program. We need your participation to continue and grow our offerings.

The AUR R&E Foundation is a distinct and segregated fund, managed by the AUR. It is not merged with any operating funds of the Society. It was incorporated in November 2001 as a tax-exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of the United States. The Foundation Bylaws were formally approved by the AUR Board and subsequently by the AUR membership at the 2003 AUR meeting. Donations to The AUR R&E Foundation by individuals are deductible as charitable gift contributions.

You have the option of designating your contribution to honor a colleague, to celebrate a special life event, or to recognize the accomplishment of a teacher, or mentor. There is also the option to endow a program, award or named lecture. Academic and community departments are encouraged to make donations in honor of outstanding faculty members, to recognize contributions to patient care, education and research. Members of the Foundation Board would be happy to work with you to make your gift meaningful. The AUR will recognize contributions at its annual meeting, on its website and in its official journal, Academic Radiology.

I challenge every member of AUR, APDR, SCARD, ACER, AMSER, A3CR2, RAHSR, RRA and APCR to contribute any amount, no matter how big or small. Nothing would please me more than to see support from 100% of our membership. I look forward to personally thanking you for your contribution.

Sincerely,

Kimberly E. Applegate, MD, MS, FACR

President, AUR Research and Education Foundation
