Shelby Aleksick 3-28-11 Kathy Kienstra Did you find this professional interesting? What did you find or not find interesting? I thought that this profession was really interesting. I didn’t really know much about this profession until after Kathy had talked to us. I thought the technics used to correctly use radiation treatment were interesting. Did you learn anything more about the profession that you did not know before? I learned about what a radiation therapist does including; specifically locating cancer or irregular growths and treating them with radiation. In a normal day they locate growths in patients and help give a treatment plan for those patients. What questions do you still have regarding the profession? Is it hard to see people who have to come in all the time for treatment?
