Student Heart Walk

As a part of an AmSECT Student Council fundraising effort, perfusion students from around the country will participate in a 3-mile walk in their respective cities on Saturday, October 1 at 11:00 am EST. Students still on campus can plan to walk together, and students out on clinical rotations can either walk alone or can invite their preceptors to join them. Students are welcome to take their 3-mile walk anywhere, making this a perfect fundraiser for all students to participate in. Please consider supporting students with a donation to the AmSECT Student Council. All proceeds will go toward sponsoring student attendance at the AmSECT 61st International Conference in Orlando, FL in March 2023.
