December GEMs

During the month of December, two ASE members recognized  their colleagues for Going the Extra Mile and received a GEM award!

  • Sarika Anand
  • Heidi Borchers

Active members of ASE are encouraged to recognize their peers as a “GEM” for Going the Extra Mile (GEM). Whether it’s for their dedication to the field of cardiovascular ultrasound, being an outstanding mentor to students or fellows, their commitment to quality patient care, going above and beyond in the past month, a milestone service anniversary, or congratulating them on a major accomplishment. No matter the reason, it is always worth recognizing your peers. Help us celebrate ASE members making the world a better place. Learn more here .

ASE Headquarters – COVID-19 Update

Beginning March 26, 2020, the county where the ASE Headquarters is located is under a government order to “Stay at Home” due to the spread of the coronavirus. These “Stay at Home” recommendations continue to be in effect and depend on the infection rates in the County/State. ASE will keep all but essential personnel telecommuting until a time when it is judged safe to return to work. We are not suspending or closing operations; our employees will remain working and providing excellent customer service to our members and the cardiovascular ultrasound community. However, ASE will slightly modify its official open hours to 9 AM – 4 PM Eastern TimeMonday-Friday. Should you need to get in touch with a staff person, call our main office at 919-861-5574 and a phone list by department will be available. A staff directory is also available here. All general questions can also be sent through ASE@ASEcho.org. Thank you and our best wishes for your continued safety.
