Introducing Our First Newsletter
Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to CoPLL Connections, the first edition of our newsletter! This brief communication will be sent quarterly, delivering commission news, updates, and other items of interest to help keep us connected. Our commission goal moving forward is to focus on the 3 C's: communication, collaboration, and clarity of vision.

I hope you enjoy our first edition.

What's New
Changes to the ACR Innovation Fund

All ACR members are now eligible to apply for a grant from the ACR Innovation Fund. This Fund provides resources for ideas that create value or address specific unmet needs faced by our members or the profession. To be eligible, members must submit a letter of intent by December 15. The two key areas of focus for the grants will be PFCC and DSI/AI. Details about the ACR Innovation Fund are available on acr.org once you log in. 
How to Stay Current on Medicine

"... lifelong learning has never been more critical to radiology. The challenge is keeping up with the attainment of the knowledge and skills necessary for quality patient care in the evolving healthcare environment. In this process, lifelong learning is not an option; it is a necessity." Read more in the ACR Bulletin article "Back to School."
Building Our Education Inventory
Raina Keefer, who works with ACR Press and staffs the Commission on Publications and Lifelong Learning (CoPLL), will be reaching out in the coming weeks to commissions and their staff throughout the College to gather information regarding their current and planned educational activities. If you have any questions, please let Raina know.

The College offers exceptional learning activities to members and other groups, including activities with and without CME. Through our collaborative efforts, we can offer our members additional opportunities for lifelong learning.
