Graduate Research Day (GRD) at Augusta University showcases the research performed by graduate students, including those in our accredited Medical Illustration Graduate Program. In the GRD awards ceremony on Tuesday, April 19th, Peter Naktin (’23) received a singular honor. Please join us in congratulating Peter on winning the Octavia Garlington Award for Instructional Design – Poster. He received the award for his scientific poster entitled, “Effective Instructions for At-Home Sleep Apnea Testing: Brochure Design for Patient Education.” The poster summarizes his exploration of patient education during the production of a brochure designed for patients with sleep apnea. In the abstract, Peter says:

“Patients seeking a diagnosis for sleep apnea seek expert care from Augusta University’s Sleep Center, where they are encouraged to use a portable, self-deployed home sleep testing monitor. Correct use of this monitor presents physicians with enough data to make a reliable diagnosis. Unfortunately, existing manufacturer instructional materials are not satisfactory; several patients a week do not successfully apply the test. These patients often pay more and delay appropriate treatment for their sleep apnea through repeat testing and more expensive in-lab polysomnography tests in some instances. The Sleep center sought to develop more effective educational materials to help patients avoid common mistakes when deploying the test, thereby reducing the incidence of failed attempts. For reluctant patients, difficulty during this initial stage may have a dampening effect on treatment compliance down the line. Therefore, materials also included concepts clarifying long-term cardiovascular health risks as a result of untreated sleep apnea. The resulting 8-page, map fold brochure provided step-by-step home testing instructions and clarified the severity of sleep apnea to Sleep Center patients. The reading level and demographics of the target audience were considered. Medical illustration techniques were used in the design, color choices, and illustrations. Reviewers felt that the resulting materials were legible, visually engaging, and adhered to a logical flow of instruction.”

Assoc. Professor Amanda Behr was Peter’s advisor on this project. Congratulations, Peter!

CONGRATULATIONS! The Dept. of Medical Illustration is pleased to announce that four MI students received awards at the 2022 University of Georgia and Augusta University Science and Medical Illustration Student Exhibition.
Allen Hagan (Class of ’22) received the prestigious Stenstrom Award of Excellence for his illustration “The Lumbosacral Plexus and Muscular Innervation.” The purpose of Allen’s didactic neuroanatomical poster is to showcase the pathways of the lumbosacral plexus isolated and in the context of the muscles and organs they innervate.
Peter Naktin (Class of ’23) received an award of Excellence for “The Left Axillary Artery and its Branches.” The purpose of Peter’s didactic illustration is to effectively depict for an audience of medical students the location of the left axillary artery, the course and distribution of its branches, and its relationship to peripheral anatomical structures in the axillary region.
Corynne Gamboa (Class of ’22) received an Award of Merit for “Clival Chordoma.” The purpose of Corynne’s illustration is to effectively depict the location of clival chordomas for an audience of medical students and demonstrate the neural and arterial structures impacted by the tumor growth.
Clara Oh (Class of ‘220 received an Award of Merit for “Treating Hypertension with Quinapril.” The purpose of Clara’s illustrated marketing poster is to effectively depict for an audience of physicians and patients the biochemical and physiological process of Quinapril, a medication that lowers blood pressure, placed within an appropriate environmental context.
The awards were presented at a reception in the Lamar Dodd School of Art on the University of Georgia campus on the evening of Wednesday, March 16th. This year was the 30th Anniversary of this cooperative exhibit displaying the best in student scientific and medical illustration in Georgia.

IN REMEMBRANCE— Octavia Garlington (Class of 1961) died peacefully on the afternoon of August 26th at her home in Evans, GA. Octavia, “Tavie” to her friends, was born April 26th, 1927, in the Republic of Panama. She and her family—her parents, brother and sister—lived in the Panama Canal Zone until she left for college in 1945 after graduating from Balboa High School.

In 1949, Octavia received her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Converse College in Spartanburg, SC. Octavia went on to study library science in the School of Graduate Studies at Emory University, in Atlanta. In 1951, she enrolled in education courses at the University of South Carolina. In 1954, she accepted a position at Agnes Scott College in the Biology Department and later worked as Assistant to the Dean of Students. While at Agnes Scott, Octavia found time to study art history and take several studio classes. In 1957 and ’58, she took studio art courses at the Atlanta Art Institute. Then she became aware of the field of medical illustration.

She arrived in Augusta in 1958 and became a member of the Class of 1961 in the Medical Illustration Graduate Program at the Medical College of Georgia (MCG). After receiving her Master of Science in Medical Illustration, Octavia became an instructor in the program, eventually moving up the ranks to full Professor. She served briefly as Chief of Art Services, Division of Biomedical Communications at MCG, as well as Acting Program Director of the academic program for a time. In 1968, she helped to design the faculty regalia for MCG, and in 1984 she designed the official flag for the university. Octavia retired from daily teaching responsibilities in 1990. As Emerita Professor she participated in special seminars on the history of medical illustration and in the development of the Medical Illustration Graduate Program.

She was active in her professional organization, the Association of Medical Illustrators (AMI), and was a Professional member since 1964. Octavia served on the AMI’s Board of Governors for twenty years and held the offices of Vice Chair, Vice President, and Corresponding Secretary. She also served as the Chair of numerous important committees. In 1988, she was elected a Fellow of the AMI in recognition of her dedicated service to the profession.

During her long and distinguished career Octavia received many awards and honors. She received the AMI’s Outstanding Service Award twice, and in 2001 she received the AMI’s Brödel Award for Excellence in Education. In 1990, she received the Ranice W. Crosby Distinguished Achievement Award from the Department of Art as Applied to Medicine at John Hopkins University School of Medicine. In 2000, Octavia received the Mary Mildred Sullivan Award for Outstanding Citizenship from Converse College. At MCG (now Augusta University), she was elected to Alpha Eta, the honor society in the allied health sciences. Octavia received the Outstanding Faculty Award in Allied Health Sciences at MCG, and in 2004 she received the Distinguished Alumni Award from the School of Allied Health Sciences Alumni Association. She twice received the Distinguished Service Award from the MCG Faculty Organization. In 2018, the Dept. of Medical Illustration recognized her many contributions to the Medical Illustration Graduate Program and profession by naming an award in her honor, the "Octavia Garlington Award for Instructional Design/Poster."

After retirement in 1990, she volunteered with the Augusta Genealogy Society as a librarian and served on numerous committees. Despite all these honors and awards she was most proud of the successes of her many students.

Octavia will be interred in the family plot in Newberry, SC, alongside her parents and siblings. She wished to be cremated. There will be a grave-side service.
