Bring a book to the Radiology Summit

RBMA will be supporting ReNEW Schools — a community service project — at the Radiology Summit. ReNEW Schools is an organization with a mission to provide students within low-performing schools an academically rigorous, college prep education. Their vision is to turn around low-performing open admission public schools, where the majority of the children have been academically left behind, into high performing open admission public schools where all children are on or above appropriate academic grade levels.

In addition to asking for volunteers to work a few hours on Sunday morning to assist with the various projects at the Batiste Cultural Arts Academy, ReNEW Schools has also asked our conference participants to donate chapter books from the third to eighth grade level to build their library.

Please pack a book or two to donate to ReNEW Schools. A receptacle will be located in the RBMA Lounge to collect your donations.

The ReNEW Schools Community Service Project is sponsored by IMAGINE Software.
