Martin Delivers Distinguished Lecture Talk

The Distinguished Lecture Series continued on November 10th with featured speaker Melissa Martin, the president elect of the AAPM and president of Therapy Physics Inc. Her talk, titled “Leadership Skills for Today and the Future in Medical Physics”, centered around her personal journey to a position of leadership in the field of medical physics. She strongly encouraged involvement in local AAPM and Health Physics Society (HPS) chapters for both networking and getting to know how these major organizations are operated. In addition, she advised rising physicists to take whatever opportunities arise, reflecting on her own experiences as a national Board member and treasurer of the AAPM, a contributor to both the oral and written ABR exams in Diagnostic Imaging Physics, and working with the Conference of Radiation Control Program Directions (CRCPD) for over twenty years.
