The Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) maintains a long-standing commitment to supporting patients, partnering with patient advocacy organizations on issues of mutual interest and priority, and providing educational programs to help patients and their caregivers understand nuclear medicine and molecular imaging and the role it can play in diagnosing and treating disease.

Our annual Patient Education Day includes general sessions to cover the basics on nuclear medicine and molecular imaging, followed by disease-specific breakout sessions.

The 2023 SNMMI Patient Education Day events were held in-person on June 25 in Chicago both in-person and virtually.  The gGeneral Session and breakout sessions were recorded. You can view the sessions on the SNMMI YouTube channel using the links below.

SNMMI also holds an annual Hill Day that allows our patient advocacy partners to engage legislators in supporting measures that ensure appropriate access to patient care.

Each of our initiatives are developed with the guidance of our Patient Advocacy Advisory Board. Information about the live programs and events offered by those groups can be found in the links to the right.
