The AHRA also offers members the opportunity to not only collaborate with industry experts and to grow their external network from our 5,000+ members, it provides the chance to become part of a community that offers real-time support via the AHRA Forum, the online community, and a chance to make lifelong friends.

HCB News: Can you tell us more about what attendees can expect at the 50th annual AHRA meeting in Phoenix?
KQW: I don’t want to give away too much, but I will say that being our 50th annual meeting, members can expect a little magic throughout the week along with an amazing meeting filled with exceptional keynote speakers (Dr. Natalie Stavas, Risha Grant, and Kenyon Salo, excellent educational sessions, leadership development workshops (like our CRA Workshop, 2022 Executive Business Leadership Workshop, and Read (Hidden) Emotions: The Science Behind a New Skill; and of course our AHRA family reunion, where time is spent connecting, networking and enjoying time with friends.

HCB News: Are there any sessions or presentations that you're particularly excited about?
KQW: I am extremely excited this year about our new year-long transformative business program designed to prepare senior imaging professions to be next-level leaders.

This new program is the AHRA Leaders of Choice Program, sponsored by United Imaging, and presented by David Waldron, BSC, ACIB, CDipAF, CEO of Traction Business Development. This collaboration has been developed by industry change-makers, and it shows. Creating fearless leaders is incredibly important right now, so this is the time for it.

HCB News: What are some of the hot topics you expect attendees to be talking about at this year's meeting?
KQW: Staffing challenges, workflow changes, and efficiencies will be a big focus, as will resilience and well-being, the integration of artificial intelligence into radiologist and technologist workflows, and MR safety.

Last, but not least, I’m proud that this event was planned with forethought to reflect our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. You can see it reflected in the keynotes, speakers, and in details throughout the event. We’ll be explaining and encouraging volunteerism at this meeting, and to that end, encouraging a broad range of thought, backgrounds, knowledge and life experiences to help make AHRA feel like home for anyone who wishes to call it that, and thereby strengthening the association by doing so.
