This year’s program will focus on “Meeting the Needs of the Nation for Radiation Protection” and will take place at the Hyatt Regency in Bethesda, Md., on April 11–12.
Moeller will present “The Business of Health Physics: Jobs in a Changing Market” on Tuesday, April 12. His will be part of the meeting program’s third session, which focuses on actions that current professionals need to take to ensure that U.S. radiation protection expertise needs will be met in the future.
