Welcome to HPS 2023!

The Baltimore-Washington Chapter of the Health Physics Society (BWCHPS) welcomes you to our Nation’s Capital region as we host the 68th Annual Meeting of the Health Physics Society at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in the National Harbor. The National Harbor is a multi-use development located along the Potomac River near the Woodrow Wilson Bridge and just south of Washington, D.C. Opened in 2008, the National Harbor is a convention center hub with everything from busy outlet mall shopping to a casino and live music at the MGM National Harbor hotel. The waterfront is home to a vibrant carousel and a unique sculpture, plus a ferry terminal and a marina with a Ferris wheel. It also offers many bars and restaurants, including a painting studio serving wine. Everything you need to enjoy your time here! We encourage you to look over the tours and activities the local arrangements committee has planned for the week. We will publish, both in the HPS newsletter and on the meeting website, information on how to get around the metro area, and attractions you may consider in your planning before, during, or after the meeting—particularly if you intend to bring your entire family!
