Chapter History

  • 2000 - Dr. Bob Metzger and Dr. Stephen Sapareto organized the first meeting of medical and health physicists in Arizona under the support of the Arizona Chapter of the Health Physics Society.

  • 2011 - The group sought to operate as an official chapter to The American Association of Physicists in Medicine. Dr. Stephen Sapareto was elected President and AAPM BOD representative for the Arizona Chapter and Tariq Mian was the first Secretary/Treasurer.

  • 2012 - With 66 Arizona AAPM members, the Arizona AAPM Chapter was officially granted chapter status by the AAPM. Until this time the chapter had been holding meetings 2-3 times per year. In 2011, at the urging of Chris Watchman from the University of Arizona, it was decided to hold an all day Annual meeting in 2013.

  • 2013 - The first Annual Arizona Chapter meeting was held at Banner Desert Education Center.

  • More than 40 meetings have been held in Arizona since 2000 including more than 5 Annual meetings.
