Ad Hoc Committee on External Communications and Social Media (AHECSM)

AAPM Members, Affiliates and Non-Member Affiliates - Login for access to additional information

To develop and implement an integrated strategy for External Communications and Social Media for the purposes of

  • providing factual, science-backed information to the public and academic communities, 
  • marketing the field of medical physics and the AAPM, and
  • coordinating communications from various groups within the AAPM to external entities. 
The implementation is to include a process for rapidly responding (reacting) to media reports and published articles in the scientific literature. In addition, a proactive marketing strategy and implementation is essential to increase the visibility of medical physicists in the healthcare community and to patients and their families. Finally, within the AAPM, we have many different groups working with the same external entities, and a coordination of communications is needed to ensure that AAPM presents consistent information and messaging to external entities.
