AEIMS has recently set up an online community with the aim to grow an active and engaging network of European medical and scientific illustrators.
This is an excellent opportunity to bring like-minded people together to share ideas and experiences, to meet colleagues and to enrich and strengthen our profession. To nurture an active and engaging online community, AEIMS is offering a free invitation to all accredited European medical and scientific artists. You would be connecting to members of AEIMS, MAA, IMI, MAET, BIOMAB and to people from different countries, cultures and education.
This AEIMS community works in a similar way to Facebook but is limited to invited members of recognised schools and associations within Europe. It allows members to share images, videos, create discussion topics, post their own work in an album, share information on exhibitions and events, advertise jobs, group chat or send personal messages. Members are able to create their own profile page, link up or ‘friend’ with whichever other members they choose. There are privacy controls, notification settings, and the community integrates with other social media platforms such as LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and Google.
The free invitation to MAA members does not require membership of AEIMS, only that your MAA subscriptions are up-to-date.
For further information please contact Mandy Miller

Graphic Medicine: Visualizing the Stigma of Illness
17th November 2011
This one-day interdisciplinary conference aims to explore medical narrative in graphic novels and comics with an emphasis on the stigma of illness, disease or disability, both physical and mental. A subgenre of graphic narrative known as graphic medicine is emerging as a field of interest to both scholars and creators of comics, and members of the healthcare professions are beginning to turn to comics as a source of illness narratives and documents of the patient and carer experience.
We invite proposals for scholarly papers (20 minutes) or panel discussions (60 minutes), focused on medicine and comics in any form (e.g. graphic novels, comic strips, graphic pathographies, manga, and/or web comics) on the following—and related—topics:
notions of stigma in graphic pathographies of illness and disability
the use of comics to explain, highlight and eradicate stigma
the use of comics in patient care
the interface of graphic medicine and other visual arts in popular culture
ethical implications of patient representation in comics by healthcare providers
trends in international use of comics in healthcare settings
the role of comics in provider/patient communication
comics as a virtual support group for patients and caregivers
the use of comics in bioethics discussions and education
Contributions are sought from humanities scholars, comics scholars, healthcare professionals, comics enthusiasts, writers and cartoonists.
300 word proposals for a 20 minute paper should be submitted by 18/07/2011 to firstname.lastname@example.org and notice of acceptance or rejection may be expected by 1/8/2011
Abstracts may be in Word, WordPerfect, or RTF formats, following this order:
author(s), affiliation, email address, title of abstract, body of abstract
All proposals submitted will receive and acknowledgement.
Abstracts will be blind peer reviewed.

Dr. Frank H. Netter Award: Call for Entries
The Vesalius Trust for Visual Communications in the Health Sciences is accepting applications for the Dr. Frank H. Netter Award. This award recognizes innovative, creative, and intelligent approaches to visual communication for medical and life sciences.
Winners of the Dr. Frank H. Netter award advance knowledge through the use of visuals that promote in-depth comprehension of abstract and complex biomedical subjects. Some winning entries are collaborative efforts that integrate perspectives of people working in a variety of disciplines while other projects represent the work of a single person with a unique vision. The one thing all winning entries have in common is the ability to advance understanding of health sciences through the effective use of visuals.
Individuals, institutions or companies engaged in the development of visually oriented educational materials that have influenced health science education or practice are invited to apply for this prestigious award. The award is accompanied by a US$1,000 cash prize.
The application deadline is December 2, 2011.
Additional information and application materials are available on the Vesalius Trust website.
If you are a member of the AEIMS, the Online Members Community offers an incredible opportunity for members to stay connected.
Active dialogue keep you up-to-date regarding emerging fields and employment opportunities and inject a dose of freshness and energy in your work
