BMES looks to the future at its
2019 Annual Meeting 

More than 5,400 people gathered in Philadelphia this month, for the largest BMES Annual Meeting ever held.

BMES President Dr. Dawn Elliott kicked off the meeting with her state of the society address, where she said BMES is strong and healthy, and is well positioned to evolve with its members.

"Last year at our meeting ... we looked back in time as we celebrated the Society's 50th anniversary," Elliott said in her address. "Today we find ourselves here in Philadelphia, a city with a long history, but also one of new beginnings. Indeed, Biomedical engineering is as established as all of our other sister engineering fields. We can proudly take our seat at the table as an engineering profession that not only has a long, rich history, but a very bright future."
