Bonfield Receives Lifetime Achievement Award
from Health and Sciences Communications Association

Washington, DC - July 2006: Arlyn Bonfield, of Biomedical Media, was honored with the Golden Raster, lifetime achievement award at the 47th International Conference on Health and Science Communication in Washington, DC. The Golden Raster Award is the most prestigious honor given by the Health and Science Communications Association (HeSCA).

As a "raster" provides stability and form to the electronic image so the "Golden Raster" recognizes those individuals who have provided stability and inspiration to the HeSCA organization through imaginative leadership and unswerving service. In addition, the award is intended to recognize contributions which such individuals have made as leaders and innovators in the field of health science education and instructional technology. Therefore the Golden Raster Award represents the culmination of distinguished service and distinguished achievement. The Council on Medical Television (the organization from which HeSCA evolved) established the Golden Raster award in 1967. This is only the 18th time the award has been given since it was established nearly 40 years ago.

Bonfield, founder and president of Biomedical Media said, “The truth is I have received so much more from HeSCA than I could ever give. But there’s nothing like having your work recognized by your peers and I am truly grateful for this recognition.”
