International Day of Medical Physics: November 7, 2017

WSRS encourages members throughout the state to observe International Day of Medical Physics (IDoMP)The focus of IDMP this year is on providing a holistic approach to women patients and women staff safety in radiation medicine. The date November 7 was chosen for the annual celebration of the field of medical physics because it is the birthday of radiology research pioneer and double Nobel prize recipient Dr. Marie Curie. This year would have been Dr. Curie’s 150th birthday. Please join us in thanking the medical physicists who continue Dr. Curie’s work!
