Proton Therapy and Decommissioning - Feb, 15th
Last month at the Pint of Science event in downtown Knoxville, we heard an excellent talk about proton therapy from Samantha Hedrick of Provision Center for Proton Therapy.

While this technology is new to Knoxville, it has been around for some time in other parts of the U.S. For example, the Indiana University Proton Therapy Center opened in 2004 and treated more than 2,000 patients during its tenure.
