HeSCA Golden Raster Award

We are delighted to announce that one of our members, Roger Hickinbotham has won this years Golden Raster Award from HeSCA.

The Golden Raster Award is the most prestigious honor given by the Health and Science Communications Association.

The Council on Medical Television (the organization from which HeSCA evolved) established the award in 1967.

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.
