The Health Physics Society is a professional organization dedicated to the development, dissemination, and application of both the scientific knowledge of, and the practical means for, radiation protection.
The objective of the Society is the protection of people and the environment from unnecessary exposure to radiation.
The Society is thus concerned with understanding, evaluating, and controlling the risks from radiation exposure relative to the benefits derived.
