Pacific Northwest Radiological Scientific Meeting
Thanks to all the planners, presenters, exhibitors and supporters who made the 2014 PNWRS Annual Meeting in Portland, Oregon extremely successful!
Radiologists and other physicians from across the region gathered for 1.5 days of stimulating continuing medical education talks on a variety of topics. Saturday's lunch featured a regional and national update on legislative issues of interest to radiologists provided by Dr. Jonathan Medverd, president of the Washington State Radiological Society. The meeting also featured plenty of opportunities to network at breaks and a Saturday evening reception. A moderated discussion for young physicians was another highlight of the weekend.
Plans are already underway for next annual meeting in Victoria BC. Save the date: June 6 & 7, 2015. Dr. Shane Greek and Dr. Chris King, PNWRS board members from Victoria, are already at work on meeting plans. Visit the Annual Meeting page for more details.
Dr. Jonathan Medverd, President of the Washington State Radiological Society, provides an excellent legislative update at the lunch on Saturday.

One of the hallmarks of the PNWRS is bringing radiologists together from around the entire region. The Saturday evening reception is a great opportunity to catch up with colleagues from near and far.
