In January 2015, the HPS International Collaboration Committee (ICC) held the phone conference during which ICC members discussed the upcoming HPS 60th annual meeting activities, including plans for the ICC special session. It was particularly challenging to compile a list of international speakers. I immediately saw an opportunity for Dr. Chelidze, president-elect of the Georgian Health Physics Association (GHPA), to speak about current issues with radiation safety in Georgia.
