Hampton, Va. (April 18, 2023):
The Hampton University Proton Therapy Institute (HUPTI) recently presented a tour and lecture to more than a dozen members of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI), a membership-driven organization through Hampton University which offers non-credit courses to mature adult learners 50 years and older. OLLI’s affordable adult education courses cater to lifelong students who want to improve their skills, explore new ideas, and interact with interesting peers in their community.
Executive Director MaryBeth Sullivan kicked off the visit with a presentation titled, “An Introduction to Proton Therapy,” which provided behind-the-scenes access to HUPTI operations and the proton therapy treatment process. The visit included a tour of one of the treatment rooms, an imaging suite which houses HUPTI’s MRI and PET/CT systems, and demonstration of the equipment that delivers critical care.
