Grady Chosen as First Recipient of Henkin Fellowship

February 21, 2012

SNM and the Education and Research Foundation for the SNM are pleased to announce that Erin Grady, MD, is the first recipient of the Robert E. Henkin Fellowship. Each year, the fellow selected will come to Washington, DC, and spend a week at the SNM headquarters. Throughout the week, the Fellow will learn first-hand how the federal legislative and regulatory process impacts nuclear medicine/molecular imaging. The program is designed for young professionals defined as residents or fellows (physicians, scientists or technologists who have completed their training within the last 10 years).

Grady is a nuclear medicine attending physician at the Christiana Care Health System in Newark, DE. She is immediate past president of the Nuclear Medicine Resident’s Organization (NMRO) of the American College of Nuclear Medicine (ACNM) and the current secretary/treasurer of the SNM Young Professionals Committee. She also serves as a director for ACNM, is the outgoing resident member of the Nuclear Medicine Residency Review Committee at the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, and is the SNM Academic Council intern.

Grady is actively participating in research on myocardial perfusion imaging, radioimmunotherapy, bone health, thyroid cancer and methods to evaluate graduate medical education. In a new role, she is leading SNM’s efforts in outreach to radiology benefit managers.
