Fall, 2013
Greeting NCUS Members and Affiliates;  

Hello everyone! It is hard to believe that the holidays are around the corner.  With so many of us travelling this holiday season, enjoy the time with your families and be safe.  

We had a great fall meeting at the Friday Center, with exciting lectures from ultrasonographic evaluation of aneuplodies to neonatal brain sonography to the echo diagnosis of rheumatic heart disease. The 33th Annual NCUS Spring Symposium is just around the corner, so mark your calendars for April 11-13 2014.  We will be meeting at the Sheraton Imperial in Research Triangle Park just off I-40.  

We are working hard to make this 33th Annual meeting in Raleigh one not to be missed. The Sheraton provides the perfect setting for learning, relaxation and fun, so make plans now to be with us.  

With the buzz being about major changes in health insurance and health care, we are planning keynote speakers to help you understand these changes and how they will impact you and your lab. As usual we are working with all the medical centers in the area to get some great lectures for the meeting.

Remember, the NCUS is YOUR society, so become involved. We want to hear from you! Let us know about great speakers you have heard or topics you want to learn about. Tell us about what is going on in your lab. Connect with your friends and colleagues on our Facebook page. Invite a friend to join the society. We are here for you. 

Thanks again for your continued support. I look forward to seeing you in the spring in Raleigh.
