Leadership Spotlight

The NBE recently showcased its Officers and Board of Directors who support the organization.

Helen Keller, an American author, activist and lecturer once said, “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” We are thankful to have such a strong team of leaders who believe in maintaining the gold standard for the assessment and recognition of expertise in echocardiography.
