    40 years ago, a group of medical physicists in the Pacific Northwest signed the constitution for the Northwest chapter of the AAPM.  A screen capture from the constitution can be seen below.  Do you know any of these medical physicists?  As we celebrate 40 years as an organization, we are anticipating a great year with two excellent meetings in the works.
