43rd Annual Meeting of
the American Association of Physicists in Medicine
July 22-26, 2001 Salt Lake City, Utah


AAPM Members and Guests

It is with distinct pleasure that we welcome you to Salt Lake City for the 43rd annual AAPM meeting. The local arrangements committee has worked hard to provide support and plan entertainment opportunities that promise to keep all attendees and guests busy throughout the proceedings.

Salt Lake City, Utah is situated between two spectacular alpine mountain ranges near the edge of the Great Salt Lake. The city is a thriving cultural center, recently named “America’s Most Livable City” and honored host of the 2002 Olympic Winter Games. Visitors enjoy some of the best outdoor recreation in the world. Salt Lake is also the gateway to the breathtaking beauty of Utah’s famed national parks and monuments. However, what makes our city special is our friendly and hospitable people. We think you will feel welcomed and at home during your stay.

During the AAPM meeting, Salt Lake City will be celebrating Pioneer Days, a state holiday held every year in remembrance of the Mormon pioneers that settled in the Salt Lake Valley in 1847. There will be many events including parades, a marathon, rodeos, fireworks, and other activities that you may want to participate in.

The meetings and exhibits will be held in the Salt Palace Convention Center in downtown Salt Lake City. Several social events have been planned in addition to the range of tours and excursions scheduled daily. The gala AAPM Night Out will be on Tuesday night. The Night Out festivities will be held at the Galivan Center – a beautiful, art-filled space located a few blocks from the convention center. The entertainment will give a further taste of our city and of life in the West. For those of you seeking a more challenging outlet, there will be a 5K run on Wednesday morning.

We have made arrangements for several tours to local attractions. You and your guests will be able to explore the area’s natural wonders and learn about the local culture and heritage. You will also have an opportunity to learn more about yourself and your own family history if you decide to participate in the “Discovering Your Roots” workshop at the Family History Library. We highly recommend this experience. (Great Salt Lake Photo Courtesy of SLCVB)

For those of you who would like to come early or extend your stay we have two spectacular out of town excursions planned. In the days before the conference a tour of Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park is offered and after the meeting a trip to Jackson Hole, the Grand Tetons, and Yellowstone National Park is planned. Magnificent sights are in store for those who venture to these locales.

We look forward to you visiting Salt Lake City!
