Notable: Chad Hensley

Chad Hensley (Health Physics and Diagnostic Sciences) accepted an invitation by Gov. Steve Sisolak to attend the signing of Nevada Senate Bill 130, which mandates completing an education-based licensing program for those using ionizing radiation for medical imaging or therapy purposes. Previously, the state did not require specific education for those using X-rays, nuclear medicine, computerized tomography (CT), and other modalities. Hensley, who co-founded the Nevada Society of Radiologic Technologists in 2014, spearheaded the creation and passage of this bill with Mary Doucette, radiography program director at Great Basin College.
