Josh Sokol, MD

Having served in traditional practice settings before joining vRad in 2009, Dr. Sokol credits the job flexibility and administrative support he’s experienced as a teleradiologist with allowing him to devote more time and attention to humanitarian needs. In April 2018, Dr. Sokol helped launch First Read Initiative for vRad, to make diagnostic studies accessible to patients in unserved and underserved regions around the globe. He currently serves on its board of directors.

First Read Initiative: Making imaging accessible to those in need

Over 4 billion people – two-thirds of the global population – do not have access to imaging technology or radiology services, according to RAD-AID. The lack of effective diagnostic tools has dire consequences for patients in unserved and underserved regions of the world.
