What are your Goals for the AIUM?
My goals are to make the AIUM the best and number one organization for anybody doing ultrasound in any discipline. AIUM is the only forum where all practitioners that are interested in sonography can collaborate and interact, thus promoting a healthy relationship between members from different areas of medicine doing ultrasound. I also want to improve the educational opportunities and services provided by AIUM to its members, including enhanced and extensive website education.
