What I'm Thankful For
The November issue of Health Physics celebrates the contributions of our female colleagues to the field of radiation protection. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I am thankful for the many wonderful ladies who have enriched my career in health physics through their friendship, professional accomplishments, and inspiring examples. I am especially grateful to be a member of a professional society where women ably serve at every level of leadership. On a personal note, I would be remiss if I didn’t take this opportunity to recognize and thank my colleagues, Deanna Baker, Linnea Wahl, and Stella Bebos for the long hours they put in to make this journal happen every month. I owe a special note of thanks to Nicole Martinez, the guest editor for this issue, and it is especially gratifying to see so many students and young health physicists contributing their work to make this issue truly special. This month, I want to encourage you to read not one particular article, but rather the entire issue, and to join the editorial staff of Health Physics in celebrating the fine work of the women in our field!
