From her years of clinical experience to her prowess in training and consulting, Conley provides an environment that facilitates thoughtful and impactful conversation unique to each guest.

“Hosting Out of the Gray (Gy) has truly been an honor,” said Conley. “I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing some amazing physicists, therapists, administrators and industry representatives. These are the front-line teams working to fight the battle against cancer every day and I couldn’t be more grateful for their willingness to share. Their efforts in the clinics leave an indelible mark on the lives of patients and their families every day, which is something that affects nearly all of humanity. I offer my sincere gratitude to these inspirational folks for their incredible passion and marked dedication toward the growth and development of healthcare. I am excited to continue these conversations and bringing light to the heroes of our calling.”

The first episode kicked off with Indra Das PhD, Vice Chair, Professor and Director of Medical Physics at Northwestern Medicine and since then have had guests from all areas of the field including Anil Sethi PhD, Niek Schreuder PhD, Jason Dixon, and even a joint episode from Wendell Lutz PhD, and Chee-Wai Cheng PhD.

“What an honor to spend time talking with Traci about what many of us are so passionate about, helping people going through one of the most difficult times of their or their loved one’s life,” said Jason Dixon, COO cCARE and podcast guest. “Good people doing great things together. And a huge thank you to Standard Imaging for providing an example and having the vision to invest in a work beyond their bottom line to inspire and educate others in the field of cancer care.”
