The SDMS is the largest association of sonographers and sonography students in the world.
I am often amazed when I hear what our members are doing across the world. From serving in our armed forces to helping the underprivileged, it is incredible to see the depth of our members that extends far beyond the professional realm. One of our Board Directors trains guide dogs while another just recently spent their vacation in the Dominican Republic teaching ultrasound and I know the list goes on and on.
Because that’s what we do.
The month of April has been designated as “Volunteer Appreciation Month”. On behalf of our Board of Directors, I would like to say, “Thank you for serving where you serve.” For those of you who are looking for your place to serve, we have many volunteer positions within the Society that might interest you and we would love to tell you more about them. For those that are stretched past their limit and can’t add one more thing, we realize that there our seasons in our lives. When the busy season ends, we will be here. For those that continually serve in our profession whether with the SDMS or within another capacity, continue doing what you do.
You are making a difference.
