Gerald F. Abbott, MD
My affection and enthusiasm for the ARRS Roentgen Fund stems from my years of friendship and professional collaboration with Dr. Melissa Rosado de Christenson, who introduced me to the American Roentgen Ray Society in the early years of my career in Chest radiology. My first lecture on the national lecture circuit was at an annual meeting of the ARRS, and I credit the society for stimulating and encouraging the many years of educational activities that have given me so much professional stimulation and personal satisfaction.
My contributions to the Roentgen Fund are made with the hope that I might help to foster similar support and encouragement for other young educators in radiology. We are all so fortunate to work in such an exciting and gratifying field as radiology, and the American Roentgen Ray Society supports and nurtures that field with the finest spirit and highest professional standards. I am both honored and grateful to be a member of such a fine organization.
