ASE Foundation Volunteers Needed

Volunteer applications are now being accepted for two ASE Foundation global health initiatives and humanitarian events this fall – Central China in September and Northern Vietnam in October. Both physician and sonographer volunteers are needed. Visit ASEFoundation.org/volunteer to learn more about each event and its specific focus. If you can fulfill the requirements listed and are interested in applying to volunteer, please complete that event’s volunteer application form. Applications are requested by Sunday, April 16.

Due to the popularity and enthusiasm for this type of volunteer experience, there will likely be more volunteer applicants than needed and unfortunately not all applicants will be selected. ASEF will ensure that every application received will be given appropriate consideration for participation.

The ASE Foundation’s 2017 global health initiatives and humanitarian events are a direct result of our donors’ generous support to the Annual Appeal and a grant from Edwards Lifesciences’ Every Heartbeat Matters program. Visit ASEFoundation.org to learn more and to contribute to future global health and humanitarian efforts.

As ASE members, there is no doubt that you excel at taking images of the heart. Now we would like to give you the opportunity to share the images you have taken from the heart. We invite you to share these heartfelt memories (and tell us what they mean to you) for a special photography exhibit to be held during ASE 2017 in Baltimore, June 2-6, 2017. Photo entries will be accepted electronically February 1 – March 31, 2017. Entries from the ASEF April 2017 event in Havana will have an extended deadline of April 30, 2017. All images must have been photographed no earlier than January 2012.
