DEADLINE EXTENDED – Apply Today!

The deadline to apply for an ASEF Council Training Grant has been extended to April 30, 2021. Full submission details available online here.

The Council Training Grants are part of an ongoing effort by the Foundation and the Council Steering Committees to encourage trainees in cardiovascular specialties to focus on the respective echocardiography subspecialty and to recruit enthusiastic new members to the Councils. The grants will cover the recipients registration fees to attend the 32nd Annual ASE Scientific Sessions. Do not miss out on this opportunity!

Women’s History Month!

Celebrate Women’s History Month with the ASE Foundation all March long by donating in honor of the women in your life! Think of your mentors, supervisors, family members – any women who are important to you.

We have set a goal to raise $5,000 in March to kick start our 2021 Annual Appeal. When you donate, be sure to include a tribute message and send a picture of the honoree to Mary Carmody, ASE Foundation Manager. Allow us to shine a spotlight on the women who have inspired you!
