ACCES is proud to announce its 2019 bursary recipients: Jack Gillies, son of ACCES member Bob Gillies (New Brunswick); and Cameron Spencer, son of ACCES member Kelly Spencer (Newfoundland).

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.

altDear ACCES members,

It is that time of year again, in which we are in the midst of the initial planning stages for the next ACCES Educational Seminars & Trade Expo. As you should already know, this year’s conference will be hosted in Charlottetown PEI. Its organization will be no small task, as this will be a combination of the ACCES and CMBES conferences: ACCES23/CMBEC41. Already, we have a strong base in forming the multiple committees needed for putting this event together, with representation from across the country.

This Fall’s spotlight article moves away from New Brunswick and into Nova Scotia where we meet Brian Seidel, one of the newer Biomedical Electronics Technologists (Biomed) to the province’s healthcare scene… but not new to healthcare. You see, Brian started as a Biomedical Technologist back in 2008 in the military.
