Connecting Our Pathways. Unifying our Profession.

I’d like to welcome you to the AAPM 59th Annual Meeting and Exhibition. Every year the annual meeting draws thousands of medical physicists who come to attend the world’s largest program of scientific, educational and professional presentations and exhibits in the medical physics community.

This year in an effort to further unite our profession and bring medical physicists together, the theme of the annual meeting is Connecting our Pathways. Unifying our Profession. The annual meeting has a variety of symposia, panel discussions, courses, and workshops on the latest medical physics topics. All these activities and events are planned to help give members several opportunities to learn and interact with peers and colleagues, make new connections and reconnect with old friends.

Denver is a beautiful city and offers a wide range of activities. Plus, it boasts of over 300 days of annual sunshine, almost guaranteeing a sun-filled meeting week. Along with the city’s great weather, Denver has a walkable downtown area. Within a 1-mile radius there are more than 300 restaurants, brew pubs, rooftop cafes and music venues.

Enjoy the meeting!

Melissa C. Martin
President, AAPM
