We are happy to share the Health Physics Society’s announcement of the recipients of its 2013-2014 Dade W. Moeller Scholarship for studies in health physics.
The Health Physics Society awarded Dade W. Moeller Scholarships to John Brogan and Jessica Gillis, both of whom are Health Physics graduate students at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colo.
The Society also awarded the Dade W. Moeller Scholarship memorializing Kelly Austin to Trang Marquez, who is pursuing her Master’s Degree in Health Physics through the Illinois Institute of Technology’s online degree program and works at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance.
Kelly Austin was an exceptional health physicist and educator who managed the Dade Moeller Training Academy in Gaithersburg, Md. The Health Physics Society Dade W. Moeller Scholarship memorializing Kelly was established after her unexpected death in 2011.
In addition to a $2,000 award to support each student’s graduate studies, the Dade W. Moeller Scholarship also provides $800 for each student to attend the Health Physics Society Annual Meeting, scheduled to be held in Baltimore, Md., in July 2014.
