Ware changing venues!  Due to the numerous events that occur in TC our usual site was unavailable!  So many things to do and see in the fall makes Traverse City and the surrounding area a very popular place to be!  It was almost impossible to find a great location  but we did!  Our new host is the Grand Traverse Resort in Acme Michigan.

Nuclear Medicine Conferences has two directors that share the responsibility of coordinating and directing the symposium.  The first director is Brian Vos, BS, RT(N), CNMT coordinator of nuclear medicine at Munson Medical Center in Traverse City Michigan.  The second director is Aimee Bissonette, BS, RT(N), PET, mobile PET coordinator for Great Lakes Mobile PET in Traverse City Michigan.  

We strive to provide up to date educational talks relevant to our current nuclear medicine practices.  We work hard to provide a great conference at a great price.  Brian and I do this work voluntarily and enjoy providing an exceptional educational event for our fellow nuclear medicine technologists!  

If you have any questions regarding our venture or the upcoming 2015 #7 Nuclear Medicine Conferences Symposium please feel free to contact either one of us at the emails below.
