Your career has taken you to a lot of places. Where have you lived?

Why did you choose Radiology?

In 2002, I had the opportunity to serve as a co-founder and as a strategy and operations executive for InSight Radiology, a chain of outpatient radiology facilities in San Juan, Puerto Rico. After that experience, I realized I could make a difference and make a career as a radiology consultant,” David Joslin of Sarasota explained.
What kind of nonprofit work do you do?

You’re also passionate about helping Puerto Rico. How can people get involved?
“Puerto Rico has been struck in the past few years with hurricanes Irma and Maria, but they also suffered through a 6.4 magnitude earthquake. Although Puerto Rico’s residents are resilient, they need all the help they can get. Those who want to help can do so by sending cash donations. The Hispanic Federation Unidos program is a great organization. Donating Supplies to relief organizations is also a great place to start,” explained David Joslin of Sarasota.
