Vesalius Trust Auction, VT Scholars and Student Showcase

We have three events taking place at the annual Association of Medical Illustrators (AMI) conference in Des Moines, Iowa (July 20–23, 2022). This is the first on-site meeting since 2019, and we look forward to seeing you there.
The Alan W. Cole Memorial Silent Auction will be back in person Friday July 22–Saturday July 23. 100% of all funds donated at the auction goes toward student scholarships. The scholarships that we are able to award are directly proportional to the results of our fundraising efforts.
VT Student Showcase: This brand new networking opportunity allows student presenters to share their projects and portfolios with conference attendees. Friday, July 22, 1:00–2:30 pm CT.
VT Scholarship Presentations (Awards and Student Talks): Seven Vesalius Trust scholarship awardees will present talks about their graduate research projects including their research goals, problem-solving techniques, and general methodology related to the use of traditional and innovative, computer-based techniques. Saturday, July 23, 1:30–2:30 pm CT.
The Vesalius Trust has also helped to fund six presentations at this year’s AMI conference including the Demarest Anatomy Lecture.
If you are unable to attend the AMI Meeting this year, please know that a donation to the Vesalius Trust will help us further both our scholarship funding for the next class of student scholars and our support of educational lectures for biomedical visualization professionals.
Thank you for supporting the Trust and ensuring the future of visual biomedical communications.
