Special Event! Cheers to 50(ish) Years: An Evening with “The Masked Physician,” Dr. Ken Jeong — in celebration of the SNMMI-TS 50th Anniversary
Saturday, June 12, 2021 | 6:45-8:00 pm ET

Join the SNMMI-TS for their 50th (+1) anniversary celebration, featuring celebrity guest Dr. Ken Jeong. This 50th (+1) celebration will be like no other as we reimagine the Tech 50th Anniversary Party. The evening will include messages from around the world, the SNMMI chapters and friends and colleagues that we have missed seeing this past year! 

The highlight of the evening will be SNMMI-TS President Tina Buehner, PhD, CNMT, FSNMMI-TS and incoming SNMMI-TS President Dusty York, CNMT, PET, RT(N)(CT) hosting Dr. Ken Jeong for an exclusive (and likely hilarious) interview. No subject is off limits as he talks about his show-business success and answers deep, probing questions technologists want to know, like “is it true that internal medicine residents spend most of their time sleeping in the on-call break room?" Dr. Jeong will then address YOUR pre-submitted questions, offering his spontaneous responses.  You won’t want to miss the fun!

About Dr. Ken Jeong
In May of 2009, Jeong appeared as the Asian-mobster “Mr. Chow” in the sleeper-hit comedy THE HANGOVER. Jeong then reprised his iconic role in THE HANGOVER PART II and III. A few years later, Jeong appeared in the Warner Bros. box office sensation CRAZY RICH ASIANS, which earned the “Best Acting Ensemble” award at the National Board of Review awards. In February 2019, Jeong returned to his stand-up roots for his first-ever hit Netflix comedy special, “Ken Jeong: You Complete Me, Ho.” In television, Jeong was most recently seen as a judge on the FOX hit celebrity reality singing competition “The Masked Singer.” Dr. Ken Jeong dedicates his spare time to volunteering with Stand Up 2 Cancer, which is a cause very dear to his heart. He currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife and twin daughters.
