Welcome to Atlanta: AMI 2016


AMI2016-eblast-banner

The 2016 Association of Medical Illustrators Conference will be held in Atlanta, Georgia July 20-23 and it will be a meeting to remember! We expect this meeting to be well attended and have planned some exciting content into a mixed format of plenary sessions, concurrent sessions and TED style talks.

We will learn how Atlanta, home to the CDC and Emory University, became ground zero for Ebola treatment and monitoring in the US and go behind the scenes to learn about caring for these patients and the lessons for future epidemics. Speakers such as Eyewire and Street Anatomy will take us to the frontiers of medical research, social media and digital art to get our neurons firing and creativity flowing. We will learn cutting edge marketing and business skills for small companies and see what new technology is revolutionizing our industry this year and there will be ways to level up your animation skills and find out how simulation is changing medicine.

We’ll have a networking roundtable session this year to give attendees an opportunity to make new connections with the remarkable seasoned professionals and groundbreaking newcomers that comprise our exciting field.

Make plans to join us in Atlanta this July and click here to register for the conference!

image003The First Annual Vesalius Trust Bon Voyage Party

The Vesalius Trust is entering an exciting new era in support of visual communication for the health sciences and to celebrate, we’re bringing back the Bon Voyage Party!

The Vesalius Trust is hosting the First Annual VT Bon Voyage Party on Saturday, July 23rd – the last night of the 2016 Annual Association of Medical Illustrators Meeting in Atlanta. A portion of each ticket purchased will go directly to supporting Medical Illustration graduate students through the Vesalius Trust Scholarships, and NOBODY WILL ASK YOU FOR MONEY. Just party, network, enjoy the company of the coolest people on the planet, eat some food (on us) and enjoy some drinks (on you). There will be a raffle for prizes and a cash bar (one raffle ticket included in purchase of event ticket, more available for purchase at the event).

The party will be held at a spacious Pub reserved just for us, located a short walk from the hotel.  Dinner is included with your ticket!

We’ll honor our roots with a short Live-Auction for a few amazing items, including an original piece by the dearly missed David Mascaro. To participate in the Live-Auction you have to be at the Bon Voyage Party! The Silent Auction will take place on the evening of the Awards Banquet.

This year only, cover your torso with your most hideous shirt and enter into the Ugly Shirt contest. Prizes awarded for the most revolting shirts! Show your bad taste for a good cause.

Tickets are $65 for Professional and Associate Members, $25 for Students. Dinner is included in the ticket price!

Can’t make the party but still want to support Medical Illustration scholarship?
