The next item in our series? Protective gear.
Professional: Dr. Prospero Gogo, Jr. — interventional cardiologist.
Pro Tool: Leaded safety garments and glasses.
Why it's a Pro Tool: "Interventional cardiologists work in an X-ray suite. The total amount of X-ray radiation that a patient gets per one procedure isn't really that much, but if you spend a career — 30, 40 years, every day — in the X-ray lab, you do have some risks that will be incurred. These garments are designed to protect us from the worst of the chronic and constant use of radiation."
“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VABEFORE YOU GO
