Originally, Alonzo Brooks had plans to become a nurse, but he quickly realized that wasn’t the path for him. Instead, he was introduced to the radiology department at Mississippi Delta Community College and fell in love.
On any given day, Alonzo performs dozens of X-rays and CTE scans on patients. “The radiology department plays a huge role in helping the ordering physicians see what’s happening on the inside and diagnose patients properly. I get the chance to help a very diverse group of people and that alone gives me the drive to get up in the morning with a smile on my face, knowing that I can be the difference-maker in bettering a patient’s health.”
One of the best things about his health care career choice is now that he’s gotten his foot in the door, he can go on to become a CT Technician, MRI Technician, Ultrasound Technician or Nuclear Medicine Technician. “The opportunities are endless,” Alonzo says.
