Kristen Waterstram-Rich, Class of 1972

  • Kristen Waterstram-Rich, a member of the Rush-Henrietta Class of 1972, is Associate Professor and Program Director for Nuclear Medicine Technology, and Co-Director of Premedical Studies at Rochester Institute of Technology. She is a well-published author who has traveled throughout the world – from Chile to Germany – speaking about nuclear medicine.

    Kristen fondly recalls Frank Giannone, a guidance counselor who encouraged her to participate in career shadowing and expanded her horizons about jobs in the medical field; science teacher, Ron Walker, whose biology classes allowed her to prove she was capable of doing lab science; and Miss Ruocco (later Mrs. Hogan), an English teacher whose public speaking class is still serving Kristen well today.

    Kristen Waterstram-Rich was honored with the Distinguished Alumni award in 2005.
