Dear Friends,

Like everyone, we at the Foundation are preoccupied with the COVID-19 pandemic and its health and economic consequences, which are rapidly evolving. Despite this, we all remain deeply committed to accomplishing our mission of accelerating the development and adoption of focused ultrasound.

In the interest of everyone's well-being, essentially the entire Foundation team is working from home. We are all healthy, well-connected, and productive; all of the Foundation's programs, initiatives, and activities are operating close to normal. Please don't hesitate to interact. We are here for you, and we’re in this together.

Be safe. Be well.
