Midyear Meeting in Bethesda News and Abstract Deadline

The 2017 Health Physics Society (HPS) Midyear Meeting will be held in the thriving urban district of Bethesda, Maryland. Bethesda is brimming with nearly 200 restaurants, two live theatres, 20 art galleries, and some of the best shopping in the Washington, DC, metro area. Bethesda is also the home of the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Bethesda Naval Hospital (Bethesda Naval Medical Center), and the National Institutes of Health. The midyear meeting will not be a topical meeting, so we are strongly soliciting the full spectrum of radiation protection specialties. All are welcome to come to share their world to make this a wonderful midyear session!

  • Accelerator
