More to Come!


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.
