What are your Goals for the AIUM?
If re-elected to serve as the AIUM Second Vice President, I would like to contribute to activities that increase awareness of the effectiveness, safety, and affordability of sonography and that educate users and ultimately lead to improved patient care. We need to continue to highlight and develop initiatives such as “Ultrasound First” and the “Year of Ultrasound” that promote patient care through the education of physicians, sonographers, and the public about the benefits of sonography including the research-based efficacy of its use. Ultrasound technology continues to improve with subsequent expansion of its applications. The AIUM must continue its important role in developing protocols, guidelines, and standards for applications and continued medical education (CME) offerings in the diverse disciplines and specialties of its members to insure that patients receive appropriate medical care.
I am fortunate to have worked within the radiology and perinatal arenas for most of my career; and as an educator, have additionally been able to instruct and interact within the realms of emergency medicine, surgery, anesthesia, physician assistant, nursing, and medical education. I have seen the benefits of collaborating with multiple specialty areas and organizations and the strength it brings to the profession of ultrasound. I hope to use my diverse knowledge and experience in association committee and board service, and my exposure to the many disciplines and specialty areas of ultrasound and sonography education, to effectively and collaboratively serve the AIUM and its members.
