Your ASEF Donations In Action!

An integral component of ASE’s educational meetings is the presentation of original research on the latest advances in cardiovascular ultrasound. Donations made to Research Investigator Support allow the ASE Foundation to fund the Brian Haluska Sonographer Research Award Competition, which recognizes non-physicians who served as the primary investigator on their project of original research.
Being able to recognize exceptional work of young researchers is very important because, as you know, young researchers are the heart and future of our field! Please join ASEF in congratulating this year’s finalists!
