AAPM Annual Meeting and President's Symposium Theme:
Celebrating Medical Physics: Transforming Human Health.

The AAPM 64th Annual Meeting & Exhibition being held in Washington, DC, gave us the opportunity to be together after two years of the pandemic and meeting virtually. We decided that this was one reason to celebrate guiding our meeting theme: “Celebrating Medical Physics: Transforming Human Health”. The Presidential Symposium reflects on our humanity and the great impact of medical physics on human health. Across the board, the meeting program spans the range from classic to new medical physics. We’re offering exceptional scientific, educational, and professional symposia, proffered sessions, and the ever-important Early-Career Investigators Symposium, along with a host of continuing education opportunities. Our technical exhibition will provide the long-awaited opportunity to meet with vendors, visit their new products on the floor, and discuss their services and support.

Washington, DC, the Nation’s Capital, is a unique city with rich and cultural diversity. The Washington Convention Center is within walking distance of notable museums, dining, evening entertainment and the Metro. The National Mall, home of the Washington Monument, Capitol, Smithsonian, and other national treasures, is a quick ride from the convention center. Major league sports are also available, with the Washington Nationals baseball team hosting games over the dates of the meeting. The city offers these great attractions and more with significant history and culture, all in a compact region.

It is you, the meeting attendee, who will greatly contribute to the success of the meeting and to Celebrating Medical Physics, continuing our work for Transforming Human Health!

J. Daniel Bourland, PhD
2022 President, AAPM
