Global Missions

Through our global health initiatives and humanitarian events program, the ASE Foundation brings adult and pediatric cardiac care to areas in need, teaching local clinicians and providing direct patient services to at-risk communities. Being on the ground in many areas of the world has immeasurable benefits to the field: stimulating global connections between health care providers; advancing population health research through data collection; teaching local professionals enhanced techniques and skills; fostering dialogue with engineers and manufacturers on field tests in remote conditions; and, ultimately, providing quality diagnostic cardiac care to the underserved.

U.S.-Based Missions

U.S.-based humanitarian missions and educational outreach projects bring expert cardiologists and cardiovascular sonographers to populations in need not only to diagnose, but also to teach local professionals improved techniques and skills. ASE Foundation funding in this area helps drive ASE’s ongoing mission to serve its members and the larger community of health care providers and patients for whom cardiovascular ultrasound is essential.

Our past success is wholly due to the vision and commitment of the team leaders and volunteers who have been building the Foundation’s program since 2012. We can’t wait to see where your passion will take us in the future! Thank you for helping us make a world of difference.
