Summer, 2015

Well, my friends, the dog days of summer are almost upon us. North Carolina schools are gearing up for another year of producing amazing new graduates, working sonographers are fiercely protecting their vacation days against ever-demanding patient schedules and NCUS board members are putting the finishing touches on the 2015/2016 symposium events.

By visiting the NCUS.org website, members can nominate next year’s board members and sonographer excellence recipients, register for conferences, and find NCUS volunteer opportunities. I encourage you to keep in touch with us through the website and our Facebook page.

In this newsletter, we will hear from our president, Chris Mann and read an interview with the 2015 Sonographer Excellence Award recipient, Elizabeth Allison. The faculty at South Piedmont Community College are excited to tell you about two new programs they are offering. And finally, we have two case studies submitted by NCUS board member, Bridget Niemeyer and CFCC student, C. Adrienne Alexander that I am sure you will enjoy.

As always, I am available for newsletter submissions and suggestions at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or the NCUS.org Contact Us tab. I look forward to hearing from you as well as seeing you in Chapel Hill October 17th.

Be well and talk soon,
Hudson O’Keefe, BS, RDMS
