2019 CE Week Photo Contest Winners

Clinical Engineering departments across Atlantic Canada celebrated the National Biomedical and Clinical Engineering Week last year from May 19-25. As part of the celebrations, ACCES launched its annual photo-contest to registered members.

 

Here we are already in the 2nd month of 2020 and both the ACCES Executive team and the ACCES25 planning committee are extremely busy planning this year’s upcoming events.

The ACCES Executive team is excited once again to offer bursary opportunities to our members and their immediate family. This will be the third year of offering two $500 bursaries, last year we were happy to award both.

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.

 

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.

The ACCES Executive would like to welcome Marwan Abouelela as a Director at Large to our team.

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 ...

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.
