The Brain Trust a musical and it closes with a poignant, historically true scene. On the morning when the statue for the fishermen's wives is unveiled in town, a Russian trawler is caught violating the coastal fishing edict, having hit a local ship and continuing onwards while the local ship sank. Because the ship's captain was rescued, he was able to identify the trawler which cost him his ship—and more importantly the lives of three of his crew. As the news is learned on land, the wives who have gathered for what was to be a joyous celebration of their hard work circle in front of the statue singing Ave Maria. This play was done both at Regis and in the town of Gloucester. At the latter location, the demand was so strong that they added a num- ber of extra shows, which state representatives also attended. Lement, who has built the theater major at Regis, teaches screen writing, play writing, and directing as well as courses in educational theater. David Gilmore Lement's colleague, David Gilmore, assistant professor and chair of the medical imaging program, is also having an impact with his work, but in the medical field. State laws are currently written that there needs to be a radiographer and a nuclear medicine technologist present when conducting and reading certain tests. In Gilmore's opinion (as well as many health care companies), that seems to be duplicative. Gilmore is looking to merge the two roles together. At Regis he has created a disci- pline where students go to school for two years to get their degree in radiography and then two more years to get their bachelor of science degree as a nuclear medicine technologist. Students can elect to do either degree separately as well. From 2007 to 2008 Gilmore served as the president for the Society of Nuclear Medicine, which is a physician and technician organization of 16,000 members. During this time, he also did a great deal of work to merge the two disciplines into one. Currently at Regis there are four students taking advantage of this combined curriculum, all of whom have had their recent research articles accepted for presentation. They presented them at the annual Society of Nuclear Medicine meeting in Miami this past June, Gilmore is happy to note. The students worked with major hospitals in the Boston area, including Mass General, Dana Farber, and Beth Israel, to complete their research. 82 WellesleyWeston Magazine | fall 2012 LA URIE A.
