Abstract
We use non-relativistic perturbation theory to calculate the leading correc tion to the quarkonium spectrum from vacuum polarization. The correction br ings the spectrum into qualitative, but not quantitative, agreement with th e measured bottomonium spectrum. The calculation is appropriate for an unde rgraduate course in quantum mechanics.
