Meeting Highlights

BIOCOMM 2010 promised revolutionary ideas and content – it succeeded! The joint meeting with HeSCA and ACBD brought together a diverse culture with a common interest of embracing change and progress in the field of visual communications and best practices in medical and scientific communities.

At BIOCOMM we explored new methods and new techniques. We explored social media utilization and in the content of our conference, social media translated to social networking and sharing knowledge and content with like-minded people in real time. By combining our resources we shared several visual media experts in photography and video and three keynote speakers. Domenic Screnci, Boston University, Allison Rimm, Massachusetts General Hospital and Felice C. Frankel, Harvard University and MIT. Program content included and crossed over in all visual media fields. Experts provided workshops from Adobe, Nikon and the National Center for Accessible Media. To top it off, we had a singing doctor, Machelle Seibel, MD the founder of HealthRock, jump-started the last day of the conference!

We want to commend and congratulate all of this year's winners in BioImages and all those who entered their work. Best of Show for BioImages 2010 was awarded to Frederick W. Dubs, RBP, Johns Hopkins University, and Baltimore. The title of his work is Ascaris Lumbricodes. View all winning entries here on our website.

We also want to congratulate and commend our members who were selected for this year's prestigious honors. Peter Medcalf, RPB, FBPA and Herb Smith joined those who have been honored with Emeritus Membership. James Koepfler was honored with the distinction of Fellow. James M. Fosse, RBP, FBCA received the Ralph Creer Service Award. Professor Andrew Davidhazy was presented the single highest honor in the BCA, the Louis Schmidt Award.
