Hello NIR Section Members!

As stated in our bylaws, the primary objectives of the Section shall be to:

  • Develop Society Position Papers and or Fact Sheets on a wide variety of topics ranging from UV exposure to smart meters.
  • Sponsor technical sessions during annual meetings to share information and increase the overall working knowledge of other HPS members.
  • Support the HPS "ask the Expert" function to enable the HPS to continue to respond to the needs of the public for information about nonionizing radiation protection.
  • Maintain a web page that is resource driven and can guide people to finding the latest information on a given topic.
  • Serve as the focal point for the HPS on non-ionizing topics.
