Congratulations are in order! Our 2009 radiation therapy class made a clean sweep in the Chicago Area Radiation Therapists essay competition. The results from the judges are as follows:
1st Place: Leah Hadden, "The Correlation of HPV and Head and Neck Cancers"
2nd Place: Allen Pusek, "Proton Therapy for Prostate Cancer"
3rd Place: Brandy Schaum, "Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma"
This weekend, all the students in our radiation therapy program will attend the Chicago Area Radiation Therapists Symposium along with Lisa Bartenhagen, program director, and Jana Koth, Educational Coordinator. As a condition of Leah Hadden's first-place award, she will provide a 20-minute presentation of her essay at the symposium. After her presentation, a certificate and monetary award will be given. Hopefully, they’ll take some pictures and we can post those in a future blog.
Again, congratulations on a job well done!
