Join us for this prestigious induction ceremony of the AIMBE College of Fellows Class of 2021, announcing the election of 160 new members to the College in recognition of their distinguished and continuing achievements. Election to the AIMBE College of Fellows is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to a medical and biological engineer.
This is a call for collective engagement to bring engineers, clinicians, industry leaders, legislators, and patient advocacy groups together to raise awareness and design approaches to address diseases and health disparities. In this virtual meeting, we expect the pooling of expertise and interests to drive material progress on underfunded diseases and the correlated health disparities.
Using sickle cell disease as a case study in an interactive session, a panel of experts will discuss the challenges at the intersection of medical and biological engineering, regulatory affairs, socioeconomic conditions, medical training, and venture capital.
A second session will follow to broaden the discussion to other disease conditions that suffer from health disparities (e.g., heart disease, diabetes, HIV, cancer, reproductive health), and working groups will be assembled into breakout sessions based on pre-meeting results surveying participants of the meeting.
Join AIMBE in our annual Awards Ceremony and presentation of the prestigious Pierre Galletti Award. Learn more about the Pierre Galletti Award here. In addition, awardees of the AIMBE Professional Impact Awards will be announced and celebrated by their esteemed peers.
Join us for an informal virtual networking after the Awards Ceremony!
