Women In Echo

In early 2021, ASE created a Women in Echo community. If you are a woman physician, veterinarian, sonographer, fellow-in-training, nurse, rising star, student, practicing in the field of cardiovascular ultrasound, the Women in Echo community is for you. Men are also welcome to join to be allies and support their female colleagues.

The community on Connect@ASE provides you with a forum to collaborate with women of all specialty areas and backgrounds to address the issues that are most important to you. Network, share your ideas, find a mentor, develop your leadership skills, advance your career, and much more. The Women in Echo community is e a place where we can advocate for the interests of female ASE members and encourage young women to pursue careers in cardiovascular ultrasound. To join the community on Connect@ASE, go to your ASE Member Portal and select Women in Echo in the Communities section of your profile.
