UDMI in the Community

COVID-19 Vaccination

December 2020

We are thrilled to announce that 90% of our staff received their COVID-19 vaccination!

Check out our feature on News12!

Throughout the pandemic UDMI has done all it can to try and keep patients safe from requiring everyone to wear masks in our office, screening patients and staff when they come in, installing glass partitions at our reception desk and rearranging furniture. Vaccinating our staff is the latest step we have taken to mitigate the risk of COVID-19.

Bronx Community Relief Effort

December 2020

Difficult times often highlight the importance of community and the invaluable role it plays in supporting us through those times. Although the pandemic has spared no one, it is apparent that our Bronx Community has been disproportionately affected. With Bronx pride and a deep sense of duty to our community, UDMI supports The Bronx Community Relief Effort. It is our hope that our support with help bring relief to those struggling among us.

Breast Cancer Awareness

December 2020

In 2020, raising awareness for Breast Cancer was more important than ever! Why? Many women put off their annual breast cancer screening during the pandemic out of fear of infection. This delay increased their risk for later-stage breast cancer diagnosis. To raise awareness and educate the community, we held a month long fundraiser in our office and partnered with Making Strides. In total, we raised and donated $6,500 to The American Cancer Society.

Virtual Patient Outreach

Since we couldn’t be out in the community in the ways that we are used to, we found fun ways to keep our patient community engaged during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic

Virtual – Meet A Technologist

June 2020

Do you know the difference between a Radiologic Technologist and a Radiologist? Put simply, a Radiologic Technologist operates the machine and takes the pictures while the Radiologist is the physician who reads and interprets the images. Without quality images, the doctor cannot effectively figure out what is going on inside of you. As such, the role of the technologist is central to the diagnostic progress. That’s why we work hard to employ the best radiologist technologists in the field to perform your exam.

Out Your Window Art Contest

May 2020

“Illustration can evoke empathy and bring shared experiences into view as millions of people around the world find themselves in a similar position: staring out their windows, wondering what’s ahead.” – NYTimes

Due to our reality at the time, many had to experience the world outside from the inside. Inspired by a piece done in the New York Times, we invited our patient community to share the view (drawing or photo) from their window with us.

Decorate the Brain Art Contest

April 2020

Did you know that the UDMI logo was drawn based off of an actual MRI image of Dr. Prager’s daughter’s brain? The brain is the center of the body’s nervous system and arguably the most important organ in our body, which is why we chose it as the image for our brand logo. Given the overwhelming response to our first art contest, we invited patients to decorate our brain!

Health & Wellness Art Contest

March 2020

To foster human connection and community, we kicked off an art contest where we asked our patients to create and submit a picture related to health and wellness. The winning submission projects a sense of hope, power, and strength; feelings everyone is searching for during these complicated times. The figure seems tenacious and ready for anything. Clothed in camouflage, she appears to be leaping ahead into brighter, sunnier days leaving behind the darker times of the past. Although not completely in the clear yet, she is well on her way.
