Domestic Humanitarian Outreach Event in West Virginia

On October 20, 2018, the ASE Foundation is partnering with the Heart and Vascular Institute at West Virginia University for its first domestic outreach event since 2014! A team of volunteers led by Partho Sengupta, MBBS, MD, DM, FASE, and Sanjiv Bhavnani, MD, will participate in a one-day cardiovascular screening and diagnostic triage event that will take place across four clinical sites in the greater Morgantown, WV area. At each site, a primary care team will provide patients with a free health exam, including a point-of-care ultrasound exam under the supervision and training of our team members. Patients with cardiac symptoms will be connected to WVU Medicine for further consultation and follow-up care. If you live in an area within driving distance to Morgantown, WV, and would like to help recruit patients for this free event, please visit this website for more information and to pre-register patients.

While the volunteer application process for this event has closed, there will be new volunteer opportunities to announce for next year. Also, if you have a connection with an underserved population and would like to propose an event, please review the proposal application here. Applications will be considered for events to be implemented in 2020 and later. Please email foundation@asecho.org if you have any questions.

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.
