ASEFoundation Mission in WV

It's great when you can 'give back' and do it with professional friends from around the country.  That was how I felt this weekend when I volunteered with the American Soc of Echocardiography (ASE) Foundation providing free screening to over 350 people in West Virginia.

Several ASE members flew or drove into Morgantown (home of West Virginia University), where we used hand-held echo and wireless blood pressure cuffs and ECG's to perform cardiovascular screening. Among those that came through, we detected several conditions, including someone who had critical narrowing of his aortic valve (main valve leaving the heart) and will need an operation.

There was a lot of Twitter activity throughout the weekend with great pics - here are a few!
