    The annual Healthcare Technology Management (HTM) Week celebration is just around the corner! The celebration (May 20–26) is designed to promote awareness of-and appreciation for-the critical work of biomedical equipment technicians, clinical engineers, imaging specialists, laboratory equipment specialists, and other members of the HTM field.

    Please help promote HTM Week and the HTM field by posting photos on social media using the hashtags: #IAMHTM and #HTMWEEK. The more we tweet and the more we post on Instagram and Facebook, the more we will spread awareness about our field. We need your help!

    This year, in addition to the annual "Best Celebration" contest, AAMI will host THREE complimentary online town halls during the week. Details about the town halls, the contest, and other great HTM Week resources are below.
