SNMMI provides the unique opportunity for a member to experience direct, personal exposure to the society’s professional relations activities with medical societies, patient groups, and professional organizations through the Ursula Kocemba-Slosky, PhD, Professional Relations Fellowship.

“Mr. Gross is a very well qualified candidate for this 2020 SNMMI Professional Relations Fellowship,” stated Jack Slosky, PhD, MBA, FACNM, FSNMMI. “The applications get stronger every year!”
