Health and Wellness Information

SSR is excited to announce creation of the Health and Wellness Committee. 

We have created a Health & Wellness section on the SSR website. Here, you will find 1) information about our committee along with announcements, 2) resource page with relevant articles and useful website links, and 3) an archive of posters/talks about health and wellness

For the upcoming 2020 Annual SSR meeting in Huntington Beach, CA, we would like to enthusiastically invite you to submit abstracts on topics pertaining to MSK imaging, MSK radiologists, and MSK radiology practice.  Examples of topics/domains can be found on our SSR Health and Wellness website. 

Details regarding abstract submission process are available on the SSR website.  All submitted abstracts will be evaluated by the Program Committee for possible presentation at the 2020 Annual meeting.
