NEWS/EVENTS

November:

11/1-11/30: For the 2nd year, UNC Radiology’s “X-Rayted” team participated in the annual men’s health fundraising initiative entitled “Movember.” Collectively, participant and non-participant donations totaled $9186 from the 30-day campaign.

11/4: Professor of Radiology Dr.Pina Sanelli, of Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine (Hempstead, NY), delivered the 20th Annual Ernest H. Wood Lecture - “Comparative Effectiveness Research in Radiology: Its Implication in Health Policy Decision for the Future of Radiology.” Dr. Sanelli is North Shore Long Island Jewish Health System’s Vice Chair of Research and an American Society of Neuroradiology (ASNR) Board of Directors member.

11/7th: Second-year Diagnostic Radiology resident Dr. Clayton Commander presented, "From OR to the OR: How Optimization is Shaping Modern Medicine" as a Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering invited seminar speaker at the University of Florida (Gainesville, FL), his alma mater (PhD, MS, BS), on November 10th. After completing his BS in Mathematics (highest honors) at UF in 2003, Commander obtained his PhD (Operations Research - Military applications telecommunications challenges) in 2007 while working as a United States Air Force civilian employee (2003-2008).

December:

12/1-12/30: UNC Radiology & UNC Biomedical Engineering jointly supported an area family in need through UNC Health Care Volunteer Services' Adopt a Family initiative.  For five family members, over $500 in gift cards and a comparable investment in gifts were donated toward this family's needs.  In 2016, 44 School of Medicine departments and divisions adopted 47 area families through UNC HCS' “Adopt a Family” initiative.

HONORS/AWARDS /APPOINTMENTS

Alicia Blount, NP, joined the Department’s Division of Vascular and Interventional Radiology in October 2016 as new Advanced Practice Provider/Nurse Practitioner.

Amy Edge was appointed as faculty assistant for the Department’s Breast Imaging, Cardiothoracic and Nuclear Medicine Divisions in December 2016.

Lynn Fordham, MD, was promoted to Professor of Radiology in December 2016.

Terry Hartman, MPH, MS, CCRC, was appointed as the Department’s new Clinical Research Division Manager in its Radiology Clinical Research Division in December 2016. Terry recently passed the Qualifying Examination for Rutgers University School of Health Professions' Biomedical Informatics Doctoral Program.

Louise Henderson, PhD, was recognized by UNC Health Care System along with UNC Department of Medicine’s Dr. Katherine Reeder-Hayes for their published results in the November 2016 Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention. The two researchers found higher odds amongst community clinic-screened, uninsured women under age 65 of not getting a follow-up mammogram in both the short-term (60-day recommended window) and longer-term (within a year and beyond) of a positive/abnormal result.
