Kathy Kelleher was a wonderful, hardworking, and dedicated member of the Nuclear Medicine Community. Year after year, Kathy gave us her time and her energy for the betterment of Nuclear Medicine. When Kathy lost her battle with cancer, we lost a well-respected colleague and friend.


So, in honoring Kathy’s memory, the Florida Nuclear Medicine Technologists have  commemorated her hard work and dedication by presenting the “Kathy Kelleher Merit Award” for significant contributions to the field of Nuclear Medicine.
