Women in Focused Ultrasound: Spotlight on Mentorship

Inclusive community

An event by the Focused Ultrasound Foundation.

In honor of Women’s History Month, the Foundation is hosting a discussion with focused ultrasound leaders who are advancing cutting-edge research and educating and training the next generation. These women are also passionate about bringing equity, diversity, and inclusivity to this field.

Each speaker will share insights about the role of mentorship in their career journeys. They will address the topic from both angles, providing advice about cultivating mentors and how to be an effective mentor. Come with your questions and ideas for promoting mentorship opportunities within your organization and the larger focused ultrasound community.
