Live from the Technion... It's the Honorary Degree Ceremonies


ATS leaders are being recognized next week with Technion Honorary Degrees at the Technion International Board of Governors (BOG) Meeting. The next best thing to being with them in Haifa is watching the ceremonies live. Fortunately, the Technion will provide a live stream of the events at the following address:

On Sunday, June 9 at 1:30 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) tune in to see New England Region supporter Brent Dibner receive an Honorary Fellowship.

On Monday, June 10 at 1:00 p.m. (EDT), watch the ceremony live as ATS Executive Vice President Melvyn H. Bloom, Western Region supporter Steve Emerson and New York Metropolitan Region supporter Daniel Rose receive Technion Honorary Doctorates.

The following are some additional highlights of the BOG (June 9-12): the presentation of ATS-sponsored prizes including the Norman and Barbara Seiden Family Prizes; a dedication of The Technion-Rambam Functional Imaging Facility with lead supporters Brent and Relly Dibner; the Inauguration of the Henry Taub Distinguished Visitors Program in the Center for Computer Engineering; the inauguration of the Diane Sherman Prize for Medical Innovations for a Better World; and Dr. Bob’s (Shillman) Technobrain 2013 Competition.


More Kudos for Mel Bloom

The much anticipated Expedition to Spain and Israel concluded on a high note, and by all accounts was a great success! Some 38 supporters participated in the 12-day trip, which was led by Expedition co-chairs Nancy Aronson, Jeffrey Cosiol and Ana Zadoff. Among the highlights were: guided walks through Madrid’s Jewish community with Medieval Jewish scholar Professor Jonathan Ray, a cocktail reception and program with Spain’s Minister of Justice at Casa Sefarad-Israel, a student-led Technion campus tour of the Lokey Park nature reserve, the student union and key research facilities, and visits to Technion-related medical high-tech companies in Israel.
