ACMImimi Inducts Seven New Fellows

Washington, DC
30 May 2013

The ACMImimi Admissions Committee announced today the names of eight new inductees as Fellows of The College.  Their names and areas of eminence are presented herein.  In addition, The College recognizes two new Members -- Gowri Shetty and J. Shore -- and wishes them well on their quest to find their own Medical Informatimusicological eminence through hyper-specialization in and contributions to the art and science of the field.

Martha B. Adams, MD, MA, FACP, FACMImimi (May 30th, 2013)
  • Our first informatimusicologist who hyper-specializes in the hammered dulcimer, playing a custom-built ConcertMaster, 4-octave plus, by Jerry Read Smith from Black Mountain, NC, finished in 2008
  • Co-hosts with her husband an annual mountain weekend retreat for fellow performers and dulcimer enthusiasts, which will surely feature informatimusicology in future retreats

Sharon Wentz, RN, FACMImimi (May 30th, 2013)
  • Promoted the use of Direct messaging for health information exchange with a "60 Beats per Minute" video, which included a smokin' cool soundtrack

Diana Driscoll, OD, LEEP AP, FACMImimi (May 30th, 2013)

  • Incorporates music and humor when delivering info and research on numerous "invisible illnesses" to patients via videos on
  • Shares her music in nursing homes -- bringing the music from the 40's that they love
  • Gets energized to do her late-night videos on her Prettyill website in musical ways (you know you do this too)
  • Created the definitive ACMImimi theme song application video (which drove us to revise our instructions for singing the theme song)

  • Wrote for the British Journal of General Practice on "Can Music be used in Medical Education" (November 2012) 
  • Ran a workshop at the GPET Convention in 2009 on the theme "Can Music be Used in Medical Education"
  • Wrote an article in the BJGP called "The influence of the Tricorder," which has nothing to do with medical informatimusicology, but balances out the fact that he is a viola player

Parvez Dara, MD, FACP, FACMImimi (May 30th, 2013)
