TedWhitten_200x300Dear SDMS Members,

Happy new year! I hope that you had a wonderful and safe holiday season.

In 2021, the SDMS is committed to providing you with the resources that you need to succeed as a sonographer. One of the ways that we are doing this is through a robust schedule of educational offerings designed to meet your needs. Based on your enthusiastic feedback about our 2020 virtual events, we are pleased to offer a SDMS Virtual Conference in spring 2021 as well as continuing our popular SDMS Knowledge Series, SDMS Virtual Seminars and SDMS CME Crunch Week. For more information about our virtual events, please visit the SDMS Virtual Events page.

The SDMS also looks forward to hosting the 2021 SDMS Annual Conference, October 14 – 16 at the Gaylord Rockies in Denver, Colorado. The SDMS staff is closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and will follow recommendations from the CDC and the WHO as well as state and local regulations governing the ability to hold or host events such as the 2021 SDMS Annual Conference.

Don’t forget that as an SDMS member, you have access to over 500 on-demand CME opportunities located in SDMS Learning Opportunities. Designed for sonographers, the CME opportunities cover a variety of topics in all specialties. You can also access the Journal of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (JDMS) CME tests in SDMS Learning Opportunities.

I hope that you will mark your calendar and make plans to participate in one of our events in 2021. Thank you being an SDMS member. I wish you a safe and productive year filled with opportunities to make a difference in your patients’ lives.
