CENTER OF EXCELLENCE IN IMAGE-GUIDED RADIATION THERAPY

University of Iowa officials will conduct a ceremonial groundbreaking for the planned Center of Excellence in Image-Guided Radiation Therapy at 2 p.m. Friday, Dec. 13 on the future site of the facility at UI Hospitals and Clinics.

The groundbreaking event will occur on the east side of Hawkins Drive just across from the south end zone of Kinnick Stadium. Parking will be available in the hard surfaced lot adjacent to the Pomerantz Family Pavilion. A "mult" box will be provided for media representatives.
