“The best part of the meeting was the opportunity to network with other students,” said Pete Weber, the Foundation’s Scientific Programs Associate. “It enabled future leaders to meet each other and interact with current authorities in the field.” The program was co-sponsored by the Foundation, the International Society for Therapeutic Ultrasound, the Acoustical Society of America, the Society for Thermal Medicine, and the European Society for Hyperthermic Oncology.
