On May 13th, the IEEE Albuquerque Section held its joint Award Banquet with the UNM Chapter of Sigma Xi at the UNM’s Continuing Education building.

Each Award consisted of a framed certificate and a monetary award. In the case of the Outstanding Young Engineer Award, the awardee is asked to give a talk at a publick talk event organized by Section later in the year.

Aaron Murray, the Section Chair presented the following awards:

Outstanding Young Engineer: Simon Barriga

After the award presentation, Dr. Dale Alverson, UNM’s Medical Director of the Center for Telehealth and Cybermedicine Research, gave the talk: “A Brave New World: A Time for Telemedicine and Health Information Technology,” which was received enthusiastically by the entire audience.

We look forward to next year’s nominations and awards.
