US Immigration Policy Update
Posted 30 January 2017
To our Membership and the MR Community at Large,
The International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine is committed to our worldwide scientific community, and we value every member of our organization, regardless of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, marital status or sexual orientation.
It is a core tenet of our mission to foster connections among our members across national boundaries, and to provide substantive opportunities for all to present and discuss research vital both to healthcare and to the advancement of scientific understanding. We have reached out to US political leaders to better understand the actions taken over this weekend and the options available to us, including, most importantly, how best to advocate for our members.
For those of our members who are citizens of the seven countries currently restricted from traveling to the United States, we will monitor this situation closely, providing any necessary updates regarding our Annual Meeting or other matters. In the meantime, please know that the ISMRM is committed to engaging you and enabling your continued work in our field. We will do our best to ensure that, no matter what, you and all of our members around the world continue to have opportunities to participate in the ongoing dialogue that defines our field and our contributions to science and healthcare.
