The vision of THE CURE CENTER is to ensure that sonography educational programs are developed so that students have the knowledge and guidance to learn all aspects of ultrasound, from head to toe and beyond, to be able to work successfully in the fields of Diagnostic Medical Sonography, Vascular Technology and/or Echocardiography.

CURE Ultrasound Advisor

General, ObGyn, Small Parts, Vascular and Cardiac.

Ashden is a Registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographer with over a decade of experience in full body ultrasound. She has worked at Andalusia Health in Adalusia, Alabama for 11 years and has played a vital role teaching students during their clinical rotations.

Ashden would like to assist CURE in developing a platform that would reduce unnecessary exams being ordered. She also believes excessive radiation is unsafe and supports CURE's medical radiation reduction initiative.

The Advisory Board will assist in the review of programs for sonography, development of clinical activiites and expectations of today's sonographers in various regions. Advisors often assist in the procurement of clinical sites that have a vast amount of pathology for students to observe.

The Advisory Board meets twice per year at THE CURE CENTER in White Plains, NY and is involved in quarterly calls for comments and review of clinical materials. 

The rewards of being able to shape sonography education are far reaching. We believe that CURE advisors that assist with student's education can help departments to obtain better prepared and more qualified graduates and, in turn, improve patient outcomes.


Medical Educators hold the key to reducing medical error and easing the strains of management in ultrasound departments.
