Volunteer applications are now being accepted for four upcoming ASE Foundation global health initiatives and humanitarian events in the Philippines, Kenya, China, and Cuba. Both physicians and sonographers are needed. Visit ASEFoundation.org/volunteer to learn more about each event and its specific focus. If you can fulfill the requirements listed and are interested in applying to volunteer, please complete that event’s volunteer application form.
Due to the popularity and enthusiasm for this type of volunteer experience, there will likely be more volunteer applicants than needed and unfortunately not all applicants will be selected. ASEF will ensure that every application received will be given appropriate consideration for participation.
The ASE Foundation’s global health initiatives and humanitarian events are supported by donor contributions to the Annual Appeal and a grant from the Edwards Lifesciences Every Heartbeat Matters program.
