Show 146 – Mesonet | Radiologic Technology
/ Alabama A & M – Mesonet / Wallace Community College – Radiologic Technology /
We visited the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences at Alabama A&M in Huntsville to learn about the different programs of study offered and the Alabama Mesonet project. Alabama Mesonet is made up of eleven combination meteorological and soil profile stations and twelve soil profile stations. We learned how these stations can help predict weather patterns which can help farmers and business.
We also visited Flowers Hospital in Dothan where they partner with Wallace Community College’s Radiologic Technologist program and train tomorrow’s medical work force. We learned out about the different types of radiology, and what is involved in training for this field. We also found out about recent technological changes in Radiologic technology.
