We are happy to share with you the names of those who received some special Dade Moeller recognition at the Health Physics Society Annual Meeting this past week in Sacramento.
2012 Dade Moeller Lecturer
- Dr. John D. Boice, Jr., newly-elected president of the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements (NCRP). Dr. Boice spoke on “NCRP and International Consistency in Radiation Protection Standards” on July 23.
Dade Moeller Scholarship
- Justin Cantley, a Ph.D. candidate in Medical Physics at the University of Florida.
- Kevin Makinson, a Radiation Health Physics graduate student at Oregon State University. (Click HERE to read more in Oregon State University’s Department of Nuclear Engineering & Radiation Health Physics’ quarterly newsletter The Neutron; see the last page of the PDF.)
Kelly Austin Scholarship
- Subashri Kurgatt, a Ph.D. candidate in Environmental Sciences at Florida A&M University.
This was the first year of the Kelly Austin Scholarship, which honors the life and contributions of Gaithersburg, Md., employee Kelly Austin, who passed away unexpectedly last year from complications related to a previously undiagnosed arteriovenous malformation.
The lecture series, as well as both scholarship programs, are funded by our company but are independently managed by the Health Physics Society. Our scholarships offer a monetary award for the students’ academic expenses, as well as funding for costs associated with attending the Annual Meeting. More information can be found on the Health Physics Society’s website.
Dade Moeller believes in the importance of encouraging and supporting our nation’s future leaders in the fields of health physics, medical physics, and environmental sciences.
