IFMBE is proud to announce that our past president, Herbert F. Voigt, has been awarded the 2016 National Alpha Eta Mu Beta (AHMB) Outstanding Dedication and Service Award.
Alpha Eta Mu Beta is the International Biomedical Engineering Honor Society. Established in 1979, Alpha Eta Mu Beta was formed to recognize and encourage excellence in the field of Biomedical Engineering and Bioengineering. Members of Alpha Eta Mu Beta are recognized in an outstanding manner for having conferred honor on their Alma Mater by distinguished scholarship, exemplary character, honorable activities, and leadership.
Herbert Voigt, a Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Boston University, is the 9th recipient of the award, which was presented to him at the AHMB Reception and Award Ceremony on 6 October 2016 following the AHMB Annual Meeting during the Annual Biomedical Engineering Society meeting in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
“I am very honored and grateful to be recognized by the Biomedical Engineering Honor Society, Alpha Eta Mu Beta (AHMB), which, for years, I have been referring to as the ‘farm team’ for the College of Fellows of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE).”
“One of our chief responsibilities to society is to nurture our most precious capital resource, our future generations of biomedical engineering leaders. AHMB represents the very top of engineering college students studying to participate in one of the most important professions of the 21st century.”
