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
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.
