We are the Baltimore-Washington Chapter
of the Health Physics Society
, a scientific and professional organization whose members specialize in occupational and environmental radiation safety. The primary purpose of our chapter is to support our members in the practice of their profession by offering educational and training opportunities. We hold conferences and technical meetings to give our members access to the most cutting-edge scientific information. We also participate in public outreach activities to increase public awareness about the benefits and risks associated with ionizing radiation.
The chapter's primary objectives are to:
- Encourage scientific exchange between our members and experts in the field of radiation safety or related professions.
- Improve public understanding of the problems and needs in radiation safety.
- Provide open lines of communication between our local chapter members and the National Health Physics Society.
