AHRA Diversity, Equity & Inclusion



At AHRA, we recognize that supporting diversity, equity, and inclusion is the right thing to do, for our members, and the medical imaging community. A supportive network of caring, empathetic professionals who know your challenges is critical in today's Healthcare environment. Equally critical is that all facets of society are reflected and represented in that network. We seek to continually become more diverse and inclusive so that more and more we look like home to everyone who joins AHRA regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, age, or ability. Please check back often, as we're just getting started here. We'll continue to add resources, information, and items of interest and value to this community.
