2016 Biomedical and Clinical Engineering Week Photo Contest Winners
Biomedical and Clinical Engineering departments across Atlantic Canada celebrated the Biomedical and Clinical Engineering Week last year from May 22-28, 2016. As part of the celebrations, ACCES launched a photo-contest to all its registered members, with a special theme: “When healthcare meets technology”.
The criteria were simple: snap a picture of Biomedical and Clinical Engineering week activities or celebrations – with the ACCES logo somewhere in the photo. We were quite surprised with the creativity, smiles, and cakes in this year’s submissions. In the end, the judges were finally able to agree on three winning submissions for this year:
Spotlight On Our Members
This Spotlight article features a member from Saint John, New Brunswick, where another of Clinical Engineering’s veterans resides, Bertram McDonald, or who we all know as Bert.
Bert grew up with nine brothers and sisters in Prince of Whales, not a spot located somewhere in Scotland, but a community just a stone’s throw from Musquash NB, where he attended the proverbial one room “little red school house” from grades one to three. With the closure of many rural schools he would finish grades 4 through 9 by taking the short drive to West Saint John where he graduated from Saint John Vocational High School.
Western Region HANS Celebrating CE Week 2016
Every year in May, Biomedical and Clinical Engineering Week is celebrated in healthcare institutions across Canada, as a recognition of the hard work and valuable contributions made by biomedical/clinical engineers, technologists and technicians.
This year was no different, and many Clinical Engineering departments across Atlantic Canada engaged in celebrations and activities, with our classic celebratory style: lots of cake!
ACCES wanted to take the time this year to recognize Western Region HANS, whose Clinical Engineering staff came together in celebrations for the young, the not so young, and the very young!
Mike, Come in……..Over
This month’s Spotlight features Mike Smith from the Fredericton Area. Although Mike didn’t always live in the area as he was originally born in Goose bay, Labrador in 1963. At the age of three though he packed up (or his parents did) and the family moved back to Fredericton, their home city.
