Why Give to ASEF?

“We are privileged to work with a wonderful technology that safely and accurately assists in the diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of cardiovascular diseases. The ASE Foundation helps advance cardiovascular ultrasound throughout the world by sponsoring scholarships, research grants, and humanitarian events. Join me in supporting the ASE Foundation so that cardiovascular ultrasound and its users can continue to grow, innovate, and provide better care for our patients.”

The ASE Foundation has a consistent, long history of making a tremendous impact in the field of cardiovascular ultrasound. It is clear that we should try our best to help keep all this essential work well-funded.”

“I specifically donate to ASEF Travel Grants and Scholarships in order to facilitate involvement of sonographers and fellows in the larger cardiovascular ultrasound scene. From past experience, I know that attendance at the annual Scientific Sessions or other ASE-sponsored courses supports both learning and career development for sonographers and fellows. Attending lectures; meeting clinical practitioners, educators and researchers; learning about professional issues and resources; and making new professional connections are essential to career development.”

“How can we maintain innovation, continued learning and high clinical standards in an ever evolving field such as echocardiography? The ASE Foundation is the answer and deserves our full support. You can honor a mentor, a friend, or simply support cardiovascular ultrasound, which always directly impacts patient care. You can make a difference!”

“The health of our patients has always benefited from technical innovation in echo and clinical research that demonstrates its impact. I am an avid believer that investment in ASE Foundation research programs will continue to expand the scope of echo and will ensure that the ASE is the dominant force in cutting edge applications of cardiovascular ultrasound.”
