Earlier this year, SHP’s Nuclear Medicine Program received gifts consisting of equipment and supplies that will be used to enhance the educational experience of the program’s students.
The gifts were received from two industry leaders in the field of the Nuclear Medicine, Universal Medical and Mid-America Isotopes. The donations included $17, 272 worth of equipment from Universal Medical, and $23, 698 worth of radiopharmaceuticals, supplies, radioactive compounds and radiopharmaceutical compounding kits from Mid America Isotopes.
“These gracious donations to our program will have a tremendous impact on our ability to further our student’s skills in working with radioactive pharmaceuticals,” said  Dr. Jeff Galen, Program Director, University of Missouri School of Health Professions Nuclear Medicine Program, “These highly specialized pieces of equipment are a key component in running a radiopharmacy and with them, our students will be able to run a whole host of laboratory assignments.”
