by Sheryl Goss
SherylGoss_2014_with-title-and-paddingAs the saying goes, it is better to give than to receive. I am so fortunate to be a sonographer and I encourage you to join me in giving back to the profession through supporting the SDMS Foundation so that your colleagues and fellow sonographers can achieve their goals of certification, attending the SDMS conference, or experiencing international volunteer service. 

The SDMS Foundation fosters professional learning and excellence through the following programs: 

  • Student Scholarships - $2,500 scholarships for sonography students

  • Advanced Degree Scholarships - $2,500 scholarships for sonographers

  • Certification Examination Grants - $250 grants for sonography students and sonographers who successfully complete/pass a sonography certification examination

  • SDMS Annual Conference Grants - $500 grant for sonographers and $250 grant for sonography students who attend the SDMS Annual Conference

  • International Sonography Assistance Program – Support for SDMS members who are working or assisting in the international healthcare arena

  • Sonography Research Institute (SRI) Program – Assists sonographers with acquiring the skills and expertise needed to conduct and publish original sonographic research

  • Sonography Clinical Instructor Program (SCIP) – Video presentations on topics related to sonography clinical instruction

  • The SDMS Foundation's programs are made possible by the generous donations of the SDMS members and the sonography community. To learn more about the SDMS Foundation or to make a donation, please visit: 

    Don't Forget – Donate by December 31 to receive your tax deduction. Donations to the SDMS Foundation are deductible to the extent permitted by law. Please consult a tax professional for more information.
