“After two years in the Army, I was enrolled in the radiography program at Quinnipiac — and, after graduating, was employed at Yale New Haven Hospital working emergency room trauma in the radiology department and then on the cardiac lab,” he said.
After he retired, he met Gerald Conlogue, professor emeritus in our School of Health Sciences, who recruited him to teach students radiographic imaging techniques.
“Veterans Day is always special,” Lombardo said. “It’s a great time to honor all those who have served. I’m proud to be part of a great group, and I am thankful for the opportunity to have served.”
He said Quinnipiac is a great place to meet other veterans and share a sense of camaraderie and find support.
