The Kenneth R. Gottesfeld Award is presented annually in memory of Kenneth R. Gottesfeld, MD, a founding father in obstetrical sonography. This year our team, of A. Nicole Stigall-Weikle, Isaiah Bloom, Jade Yang, and Kevin Evans, were selected for this honor based on the committee selecting the paper titled: Sonographic Cardiovascular Assessment of the Aorta: Pilot of a Modified Image Grading System. This award will be presented at the SDMS Annual Conference in Atlanta, GA. This team of researchers collected this data at a family practice clinic during the mid-portion of the COVID pandemic. This team rocks the world!!!
The Society of Diagnostic Sonography has selected Dr. Evans and Isaiah Bloom to present at their annual conference, in Atlanta, GA. The plenary lecture is an invited talk on the use of augmented reality added to ultrasound guided imaging procedures. Evans and Bloom will be lecturing to the conference attendees on the value of augmented reality and also demonstrate how this technology has the ability to change work flow and reduce risk for work-related musculoskeletal injuries.
Following in our great tradition, Sydney Snyder was recently awarded the 2nd year OSU Distinguished Scholar Award.

It is such a thrill to announce that Isaiah Bloom has been offered admission to Dartmouth’s Geisel School of Medicine. The Geisel School of Medicine, at Dartmouth, is the graduate medical school of Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire. The fourth oldest medical school in the United States, it was founded in 1797 by New England physician Nathan Smith. It is one of seven Ivy League medical schools. This prestigious offer of admissions to study medicine at Dartmouth demonstrates the academic and research preparation that Isaiah embodies. Isaiah will begin his studies at Dartmouth in the fall semester of 2022 and begin his new career as a physician. We are so proud of Isaiah and all his accomplishments that have lead to this stellar admission. Isaiah continues to work in the lab and was recently promoted to Manager of the Augmented Reality research, funded by MediView, LLC.
