All of us here at AMI think of each other as members of one big family. So, for the first time ever, we created the AMI Family Cookbook! Filled with our employees' favorite family dishes, this cookbook has so many different recipes from soups to desserts and a whole lot of extras!
We'd love to share this book with you, so we're making it available for purchase! The books cost $8 each or 3 for $20. All profits will benefit the AMI Foundation.
If you'd like to purchase an AMI Family Cookbook, please contact Desirree Palumbo at 609-677-9442.

According to its history on Gilda's Club of South Jersey's website, the legend of Qu Yuan is an ancient Chinese tale. Qu Yan was exiled from his ancient state after the king misinterpreted Qu Yan's advice to him as a way to assume higher power in his community. He was then banished from his state and sent to a desolate area. He was so grief-stricken that he threw himself into the Milou River. However, a group of local fishermen raced into the river, beating their drums and splashing the water, to save Qu Yuan from being eaten by the water dragons and fish.
Nowadays, the race is merely a reenactment of the race to save Qu Yuan. In 2006, Gilda’s Club of South Jersey, an organization founded on empowering those impacted by cancer with knowledge and strength, got its own boat because researchers found that paddling those boats can have therapeutic benefits for some cancer patients.
The first-ever 2016 Dragon Boat Race to benefit Gilda's Club of South Jersey was this past Saturday, July 9th, and had 36 teams who, combined, raised almost $100,000 for the organization. AMI was proud to be part of the experience. Their team was made up of an energetic mix of radiologists, employees, and family members/friends. Believe it or not, most of their team members had never even stepped foot into a boat, let alone paddled a boat in a competition before! But they made the best of it and really enjoyed putting together their theme—AMI Luau—which included grass skirts and AMI's signature color of blue leis.
Through the AMI Foundation, Atlantic Medical Imaging has supported Gilda's Club of South Jersey for many years, specifically through the Nooglieland Program which aims to support children who are cancer survivors.

With more than 170,000 people in New Jersey predicted to be living with Alzheimer’s disease this year, and that number only continuing to rise, the need to find a more effective diagnosis and treatment is becoming more and more dire.
The Press of Atlantic City recently spoke with Dr. David Levi about AMI’s role in the IDEAS study and why he is so proud to be involved. “I can say, personally, my grandmother had the disease and it’s a tough illness to watch. If we can make a difference in patients’ lives, be able to provide the typical level of service with a national trial, that’s what we’re about.”
