Past Award Winners

Use the tabs below to navigate to each award and our storied history of outstanding volunteers who have gone above and beyond for RBMA.

The Calhoun Award

The first RBMA steering committee met in 1968 in Chicago under the guidance of Dr. Joseph Calhoun. His business manager, Maxine Williams, directed the organization for many years. RBMA was formed for two purposes: to provide for the development and recognition of radiology business managers, and to improve the administration of radiology practices, enabling radiologists to concentrate on providing their services, thus holding down the costs of those services. RBMA seeks to fulfill its purposes through the education of its membership, other healthcare professionals and the public at large.

The Calhoun Award is for outstanding contributions to radiology business management and to RBMA.
