11th Annual Research Awards Gala

The ASE Executive Committee recently made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Scientific Sessions. As we explore alternative options for sharing this year’s Scientific Sessions content, we are also exploring options to still offer the Gala live at a later date this year. We will be discussing all possibilities with our ASE Foundation Board before making a final decision. In the meantime, all table and seat purchases will be held however, if you’d prefer to request a refund we are able to process those requests. If you do select to receive a refund, we ask you to consider leaving the tax-deductible donation portion of your purchase with the ASE Foundation as this event represents our largest fundraiser for the year and is instrumental in supporting our 2021 projects. Thank you!

Dinner & Celebration

The ASE Foundation cordially invites you to attend our “All the Colors of the World” black-tie fundraiser to celebrate cardiovascular ultrasound research and honor ASE’s 2020 award recipients.  Formal attire showcasing your personal heritage and culture is encouraged for this magical evening of entertainment, dinner, and dancing.
