CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Association for the Advancement of Automotive Medicine (AAAM; www.aaam.org), a dynamic, global, multidisciplinary professional organization, today announced Bostrom as its management consultancy of record, responsible for managing AAAM’s worldwide operations.
“Bostrom’s expertise gives us the flexibility and infrastructure we need to build a strong and sustainable future for AAAM,” said Frank Pintar, Ph.D., president, AAAM. “Its agile association management approach and focus on integrated content marketing complements our strategic objectives and will help us move into our next stage of growth,” he said.
“We are proud to be working with the leading association in this field,” said Randy Lindner, CAE, president, Bostrom. “Our agile team is a perfect match to provide the operational and marketing savvy AAAM needs to grow and advance its mission to reduce the number and severity of injuries from motor vehicle accidents,” said Lindner.
AAAM traces its nearly 60 year history to six physicians who enjoyed car racing and were concerned about driver safety. In 1957, they formed the Medical Advisory Committee of the Sports Car Club of America, which then became the AAAM. Since those early years, AAAM has expanded membership beyond physicians to include all road safety professionals such as engineers, researchers and other healthcare professionals throughout the world. Members are involved in public policies and programs governing injury control, participate in an annual educational and networking conference and have access to the Accident Analysis and Prevention and Traffic Injury Control, two definitive publications on their respective issues. Additionally, AAAM developed and updates the Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS©), an internationally-recognized tool for ranking injury severity. Available in several languages, AIS is the global system of choice for injury data collection.
“It is an honor to partner with AAAM and build on its success,” said Abigail Gabbard, account executive, Bostrom who will serve as AAAM’s Executive Director. “We look forward to supporting AAAM leadership as it achieves its goals through content marketing, technology infrastructure and data-driven reporting,” she said.
