The ACCES Executive would like to welcome Marwan Abouelela as a Director at Large to our team.
Marwan joined IWK Health Centre in 2017, bringing with him over twenty (20) years of diversified experience in healthcare including project management, marketing, medical affairs, sales management and leadership roles.
Well it’s that time of year where we are all looking forward to spending time building memories with our family and friends. Hopefully you will be one of the lucky ones who will enjoy some extra vacation time off outside the holidays to do so.
During your time off though I do ask for you to think about a couple of interesting challenges that ACCES is putting forward.
Have you ever wanted to expand your professional horizons and looking for opportunities that could help open new doors. We may just have that opportunity.

This year marked the 24th anniversary of an annual event that brings together clinical engineering professionals and key healthcare technology players in Atlantic Canada: the Atlantic Canada Clinical Engineering Educational Seminars and Trade Expo. Over 150 delegates, vendors, and speakers were present for this event in Halifax, Nova Scotia, from June 11-14, 2019.
On the evening of June 13th, during the banquet dinner for the 2019 ACCES Annual Educational Seminar and Trade Expo, a clinical engineering professional from Atlantic Canada, Sean Nobles, was recognised for having distinguished himself through his hard work, exceptional service, technical skills, and dedication to the clinical engineering profession.
In late October, one of our very own clinical engineering technologists, Felicity Chevron MacKay, went on a special trip: she joined a volunteer task force made up of nurses, physicians, and other healthcare professionals committed to delivering and improving healthcare in Guatemala. ACCES was glad to offer some financial support in the form of a $300 donation for Felicity and the Refugee International volunteer group’s mission. Felicity was more than happy to share her story with us once she returned from her mission.
Clinical Engineering departments across Atlantic Canada celebrated the National Biomedical and Clinical Engineering Week last year from May 20-26. As part of the celebrations, ACCES launched its annual photo-contest to registered members.
The criteria were simple: snap a picture of Clinical Engineering week activities or celebrations – with the ACCES logo visible 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 ...

ACCES is proud to announce its very first bursary recipient in January 2018: Nicolas Chassé, son of ACCES member Mario Chassé. Nicolas will be using the $500 bursary to attend a course in electronics engineering technology, intending to follow in his father’s footsteps and to one day become a clinical engineering technologist (pictured above: Nicolas Chassé with ACCES member and proud father Mario Chassé). Congratulations, Nicolas, and best of luck!
