SNM presents awards on Capitol Hill

WASHINGTON, D.C.SNM, the worlds largest society for molecular imaging and nuclear medicine professionals, honored seven legislators with special recognition awards for their outstanding support of the profession. SNM is holding its 54th Annual Meeting June 26 at the Washington Convention Center.

To continue to move molecular imaging and therapy innovations from the research laboratory to real improvements in patient care, we need the support of Congress, said SNM President Alexander J. McEwan, who presented the awards during a June 5 Capitol Hill reception. Were extremely appreciative of the support from these legislators and look forward to working with them in the future, he added.

Receiving awards from SNM were

  • Sen. Ted Stevens (R-Alaska), in recognition of his career of leadership in supporting innovation and quality in the science and practice of nuclear medicine and molecular imaging, and
  • Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) and Sen. Christopher S. Kit Bond (R-Mo.), in recognition of their support for groundbreaking scientific research in nuclear medicine and molecular imaging.

SNMs Technologist Section presented awards to the following legislators in recognition of their ongoing dedication to patient care and safety through the Consistency, Accuracy, Responsibility and Excellence in Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapy (CARE) Act:

  • Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.)
  • Sen. Michael B. Enzi (R-Wyo.)
  • Rep. Mike Doyle (D-Pa.-14th)
  • Rep. Charles W. Chip Pickering Jr. (R-Miss.-3rd)

About 50 people attended the reception, which provided society members and corporate representatives with the opportunity to meet with congressional representatives and their staff members to discuss issues related to molecular imaging and therapy.
