Let’s delve a little deeper into a topic I have mentioned before in a blog post - nuclear medicine. Nuclear medicine can be simply described as that area of healthcare that uses nuclear physics principles to detect and/or treat disease. Cancer is one disease where the power of nuclear medicine has been brought to bear in multiple ways. While nuclear physics has been used to diagnose and treat many types of cancer, since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I decided to focus this post on breast cancer.

Attendees Take Science Activities and Excitement Back to their Classrooms
NEWPORT NEWS, VA – Elementary and middle school science teachers, from all around Region II, gathered at Jefferson Lab on April 11 for a “science-ed pep rally” that combined networking, scientific door prizes and hands-on classroom activities. The event had them leaving the Lab energized about science and ready to bring what they learned to their classrooms.
