The Northeast Wisconsin Technical College (NWTC) is hosting a BMET symposium from Thursday, October 28, to Friday, October 29, in Green Bay. The event will be a collaborative experience, put together by the radiography and biomedical electronics programs at NWTC as well as the professional organizations that support them. 

In addition to typical symposium events, the NWTC is inviting local high school students, instructors, and parents to attend day two of the event to promote awareness of the HTM field.

Don Cormier, an instructor at NWTC’s biomedical electronics program and one of the event organizers, says the NWTC is currently finalizing speaker details but is also looking for new speakers to replace those who have canceled due to the pandemic. If you or someone you know would like to present at the event, please contact don.cormier@nwtc.edu.

As of now, some notable speakers on the docket include Pronk Technologies’ Gary Hoffman, who will present, “Is the Medical Device Really Ready to Go Back to the Clinical Department”; Kenneth Hable, MD, BSRT, Siemens Lead Engineer/Instructor at Tri-Imaging Solutions, who will discuss networks, PACS, and DICOM troubleshooting; and Jay Olson, director of biomedical services at Marshfield Clinic Health System in Wisconsin, who will moderate a roundtable discussion on medical device and facilities’ network security.
