The Lighter Side of Health Physics
Sometimes a cartoon speaks more quickly and clearly than words. Al Goodwyn, CHP, cartooned for the Health Physics Society (HPS) newsletter for 28 years, beginning in 1989, bringing us a humorous look at health physics that we have enjoyed over the years. Some of our favorite Al Goodwyn cartoons are available on these pages.
After his start with the HPS, Al began providing editorial cartoons for a local newspaper and has since been widely featured in print and online and has won numerous editorial cartooning awards, most recently from the South Carolina Press Association in 2018 and 2019, the 2019 Dateline Award from the DC Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists, and 2nd place in the 2020 Green Eyeshade Award for editorial cartooning in the Southeast.
Al was featured on the cover of the August 1999 issue of the HPS newsletter and talked about his cartooning, health physics, and the HPS. He is now retired from the health physics profession and is living in North Carolina.
