We will dedicate two full days of sessions related to HIS-20 (Health Physics Information Management Systems). This track is open to current contract customers; there is no charge to participate. This is a great opportunity to collaborate with colleagues and share challenges and successes with the company and your fellow users. These sessions will be held on Monday and Tuesday which will allow you to participate in the conference later in the week.
Below is a summary of the topics we propose to cover at the 2019 conference. As more of you sign up we may decide to add or drop a topic to tailor the conference to you, our audience! And as always, don’t be afraid to volunteer to present any issue from your site that might be of interest to the HIS-20 / WACS community.
As always, we want your input on what you would like to cover and discuss at this year’s users’ conference. Please send your ideas, thoughts, concerns, etc. to firstname.lastname@example.org and/or email@example.com
We will dedicate two days of sessions related to Sentinel RP Software. This is a great opportunity to collaborate with colleagues and share challenges and successes with the company and your fellow users.

This year’s conference includes two full days of practical sessions aimed at Emergency Responders, in addition to presentations, workshops, demonstrations and the equipment demo room.
More details coming soon.
Dr. Andrew Karam, spent over a decade working as a rad/nuke scientist and subject matter expert with the New York City Police Department’s Counterterrorism Division, the New York City Fire Department, and the New York City Health Department — his work included not only developing operational plans, but also giving training to New York’s cops and firefighters. He is nationally and internationally recognized for his expertise in this area — as well as for the quality of his instruction.
During these two days, Dr. Karam will not only teach you the basics you need to know about radiation and radiation safety, but will also give you hands-on experience with radiation instruments to get a feel for how they work, how to use them in the classroom, and how to use them in some emergency response scenarios. This could be a fire in a university “hot” lab, an overturned radiopharmaceutical delivery vehicle, or a criminal who breaks into a facility to try to steal a high-activity research or industrial irradiator. Regardless of the event and its severity there is one common factor — emergency responders will need to work in a radiological environment and they need to know how to do so safely.
