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.
