As if you needed a personal invitation from me, here it is nonetheless. Please join me (and a several thousand of your colleagues) at the American Hot Rod Association [ahem] American Healthcare Radiology Administrators annual meeting in August. And though it may not really be my place to invite you to the conference, I do want to extend to you a personal invitation to 2½ special events that will happen during that week.
The first special event is a presentation that AHRA invited me to give entitled ‘MRI Safety, Liability, and Best Practice.’ If you received the conference program mailers a few weeks ago that indicated that I am giving this presentation on that first Sunday of the conference, don’t believe it! I am not giving this presentation on Sunday, but I am giving it on Monday, August 10th, from 2:30 – 4:00. (They’ve done a little juggling that changed a few scheduled presentations.)
The program will touch on a number of the MR safety developments of the last several years, though even more from a management perspective than any of my prior presentations to AHRA.
This is the first special invitation and I would very much love for you to join me on Monday afternoon. There are lots of other great sessions, however, and I understand if you have your eyes on another program scheduled for the same slot. I’ll miss you though, and will stare wistfully at your empty chair in the presentation.
Which brings me to my ½-event invitation. It’s actually a full event. It’s 90-minutes long, just like my Monday presentation. In fact, it’s almost exactly like the 90-minute Monday presentation because AHRA has asked me to offer this program twice! If you can’t make Monday afternoon, please come by Tuesday morning, from 8:00 – 9:30, to see ‘MRI Safety, Liability, and Best Practice’. I’ll actually feel much better on Monday if you’re not there, since we have this opportunity to meet up on Tuesday. And if you’re a glutton for punishment, or if you just want to see what I do to mix it up from one day to the next, you’re welcome to attend both sessions.
The last special event to which this post invites you is actually a revolving, ongoing set of conversations that I would love to share with you. When I’m not on the podium in front of large audiences, I will be in the Mednovus booth on the exhibit hall floor (booth #828 / 830), having one-on-one and small group conversations. I invite you to come by and join in a personal conversation with me and my colleagues about how best to prepare your MRI facility for the rapid-fire changes that are in process.
Though it’s only 4 weeks until AHRA, the great people at Mednovus are diligently working on special announcements that will be released in the lead-up to the annual meeting. Please stay tuned to be among the first to learn of what’s going on.
I hope to have the chance to see you at the annual meeting. Please do join me in one (or both) of my presentations, and do visit with me and my colleagues in our booth. I’m really looking forward to it.Tobias Gilk, President & MRI Safety Director Mednovus, Inc. Tobias.Gilk@Mednovus.com www.MEDNOVUS.com
