On March 5, Sanford-Brown College, Jacksonville hosted the quarterly meeting of the First-Coast Echo Society, a chapter of the American Society of Echocardiography. Twenty-seven cardiac sonographers attended the event, including many of program’s clinic affiliates, who have, over the years, either hosted or hired students from the campus’s Cardiovascular Sonography Program.
The purpose of this meeting was to gather and share ideas and learn from each other about certain standards of care, as well as the emerging technologies in the field of Cardiovascular Sonography. Information sessions were led by some of the area’s finest sonographers, such as Ruby Lara, RDCS, FASE, and Bonnie Urbanski, RDCS, RDMS . Discussions ranged from case studies to the value of contrast to motion injuries. After the event, the facilitators provided a Q&A session for the group, followed by a guided tour of the CVS lab, where visitors had the opportunity to observe where students develop and sharpen their scanning skills.
According Lowell “Corky” Hecht, Program Chair of SBC-JAX’s Cardiovascular Sonography Program, those in attendance were “very impressed with our campus.” Mr. Hecht continued, saying, “Many commented on the preparedness and professional of our student externs, too.”
SBC-JAX would like to thank the First-Coast Echo Society for visiting their campus
