 crockett nuclear week

Crockett Mayor Wayne Mask presents ETMC Crockett Nuclear Medicine Technologist Charlotte Neumeier a proclamation declaring Oct. 7-14 Nuclear Medicine Week in Crockett.

Celebrated during the first full week of October, Nuclear Medicine Week encourages community members to take pride in their profession - recognizing their colleagues for their hard work and promoting nuclear medicine to the entire medical community as well as to the public.

Nuclear Medicine Week allows physicians, technologists, scientists and others involved in nuclear medicine and molecular imaging to take a proactive role in the advancement of the field. From advances in cancer diagnosis and treatment to recent breakthroughs in Alzheimer's and dementia research, nuclear medicine is improving lives.

It is important that patients, referring physicians, students and even politicians are educated on the utility of nuclear medicine procedures and their benefits over other treatment and imaging modalities.

Nuclear Medicine Week is also a time to express appreciation to those dedicated to the field.

Crockett City Council, Mayor Wayne Mask signed a proclamation declaring the week of Oct. 7-14 as Nuclear Medicine Week in Crockett.
