Melissa L. Rosado de Christenson, MD
It is my pride and privilege to contribute generously to The Roentgen Fund® in the knowledge that in so doing, I play an active role in supporting and promoting the early careers of radiology researchers and educators, including radiologists-in-training and radiologists in practice, for the greater benefit of our specialty and the patients entrusted to our expert care.
I take this opportunity to recognize one of my earliest mentors, Dr. Richard P. Moser, Jr., former Chairman and Registrar of the Department of Radiologic Pathology at the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology. Dr. Moser strongly encouraged me to become an active member of the American Roentgen Ray Society when I joined his department. This marked the beginning of over three decades of my involvement in the activities of the ARRS, a relationship that exposed me to countless mentors and role models who helped shape and advance my career and accomplishments as a radiologist.
