Due South, December 2020

I hope you are keeping well in these strange times. I’m really missing Tim Hortons, and it doesn’t look like we Yanks are going to be allowed into the Great White North (cue Doug McKenzie singing the SCTV theme song) anytime soon.

Howdy, y’all. It’s early February here in South Texas, but the weather has been very spring-like, perhaps no more than five nights of below freezing temperatures for the entire “winter.” / Scott Nichelson, qui s’autoproclame membre de l’ACRP habitant le plus au sud de l’Amérique du Nord, vit au Texas.

On an unusually cold and rainy spring day, the Health Physics Society’s State of Texas Chapter hosted its annual student meeting on the campus of Texas A&M University in College Station, TX. / En effet, lors d’une journée printanière inhabituellement glaciale et pluvieuse, le chapitre de l’État du Texas de la Health Physics Society (société de la radioprotection) a tenu sa rencontre annuelle pour les étudiants sur le campus de l’Université Texas A&M, situé à College Station, au Texas.

Due South: Advantages of the Chapter Model

Here in the United States, the Health Physics Society (HPS) is our radiation protection society. One of the things I like about HPS, and encourage CRPA to adopt, is the concept of a chapter, which is a geographical subset of HPS. / Ici, aux États-Unis, notre société de radioprotection s’intitule la Health Physics Society (HPS). Ce que j’apprécie particulièrement de cette société, et que j’encourage l’ACRP à imiter, est le concept de division, soit un sous-ensemble géographique de la HPS.
