ASEAN Society of Echo



The dawn of a new society

The ASEAN Society of Echocardiography was organized in May 2016 with a pro tempore committee a year ago composed of representatives of the ten member countries from the ASEAN Federation of Cardiology (AFC). The Philippine Heart Association, a member of the AFC, nominated Dr. Edwin S. Tucay (President of the Philippine Society of Echocardiography) and Dr. Ronald Cuyco (Chairman of the PHA Council on Echocardiography) as representatives to the pro tempore committee. Hence, the Philippines became active in the initial organization of the committee which led to the formation of the ASEAN Society of Echocardiography under the umbrella of the AFC. -- M.Supe
