NCUS Foundation Mission


     The mission of the North Carolina Ultrasound Society Foundation is to provide educational opportunities in the field of diagnostic medical sonography to North Carolina sonographers and sonography students. The NCUS Foundation offers some financial assistance allowing recipients to attend NCUS professional education conferences who may otherwise not be able to attend. The foundation award program covers the cost of registration fees to the next annual NCUS Spring Conference. Other travel expenses are the responsibility of the recipient.
