Congratulations to Lawrence Sherman, president, Business Development, Jobson Education Group; Carolyn Darrow, MPH, director of continuing medical education for Quintiles Medical Communications; Michael Lemon, MBA, president, Postgraduate Institute for Medicine; and Brian P. Russell, RPh, president, Vox Medica, for their recent election to the Board of Directors for the North American Association of Medical Education and Communication Companies. Our booth at the AMA Task Force meeting last week was next to Quintiles, and I got the unofficial word then about Carolyn's new role at NAAMECC (she so impresses me), and they can't go wrong with Lawrence (who, incidentally, is one of the all-time great facilitators I've seen. His sessions at last year's Alliance meeting rocked!).
With all the MECC-bashing I heard last week in Baltimore, they're coming in at a rough time for this segment of the med ed industry, but, as Brian told me at lunch on Wednesday, they're more than up to the challenge. I know I'll be watching to see what they're up to.
