ANNUAL BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY AWARD
ESTABLISHED BY MYRON HARTMAN; FUNDED BY MD PUBLISHING
Douglas Skrabiski and Garry Weber are first recipients

Douglas Skrabiski and Garry Weber, second-year students in the Biomedical Engineering Technology program at Penn State New Kensington, are the first recipients of the inaugural TechNation scholarship.
The awards were based on essays written by the students. Skrabiski earned the first-place $500 award and Weber took the runner-up $250 award. The Pittsburgh residents' winning essays will be published in the July (Skrabiski) and August (Weber) issues of TechNation magazine by MD Publishing. Based in Peachtree City, Georgia, the publishing company is an online source for dealers and manufacturers of medical and surgical equipment.

The scholarships were established by BET program coordinator Myron Hartman, who is on the editorial board for two of MD Publishing's magazines, Medical Dealer and TechNation. In addition, Hartman writes three articles a year for TechNation. His yearly stipend for the articles and funding from John Kreig, publisher of MD Publishing, supports the awards.
