Advocacy

The American Society of Echocardiography’s mission in advocacy is to represent the interests of our members, while advocating to create an environment for excellence in the quality and practice of cardiovascular ultrasound. The ASE’s role as the voice of echocardiography on Capitol Hill, to federal agencies, and among private payers is unquestionably of great–and ever-increasing– importance.
