Cheri L. Canon, M.D., professor and Witten-Stanley Endowed Chair of Radiology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, has been named to the American Board of Radiology’s Board of Governors. Desiree E. Morgan, M.D., professor and vice chair for Education in the Department of Radiology at UAB, has been appointed to the American Board of Radiology’s Board of Trustees.

Canon, who previously served the ABR as a trustee, will now serve the board in matters of finance, strategic planning, priority setting, and oversight of American Board of Medical Specialty matters.

Morgan hopes her experience will enable her to improve the abdominal imaging certification process.

“As the abdominal trustee, I plan to help the ABR as it advances the quality, relevance and effectiveness of its exams for initial certification and maintenance of certification across all disciplines of radiology; but my particular expertise will be focused on the gastrointestinal, genitourinary, ultrasound, and reproductive/endocrine radiology arenas,” Morgan said. “The ABR Board of Trustees is responsible for aiding in operational decisions around certification testing, including exam goals, format, content, assembly, delivery, scoring and feedback.”

Canon will serve on the Board of Governors for four years. Morgan will serve on the Board of Trustees for three years.
