“Immaculata University not only helped me obtain my bachelor’s degree in allied health, but led me towards my career in nuclear medicine. I now work in an outpatient oncology office using clinical trial drugs to treat cancer and find cures for Alzheimer’s and dementia patients. IU’s program was a great fit for me and I wouldn’t be where I am today without the wonderful staff and opportunities that Immaculata offers.”
