The Kenneth R. Gottesfeld Award is presented annually in memory of Kenneth R. Gottesfeld, MD, a founding father in obstetrical sonography. This year our team, of A. Nicole Stigall-Weikle, Isaiah Bloom, Jade Yang, and Kevin Evans, were selected for this honor based on the committee selecting the paper titled: Sonographic Cardiovascular Assessment of the Aorta: Pilot of a Modified Image Grading System. This award will be presented at the SDMS Annual Conference in Atlanta, GA. This team of researchers collected this data at a family practice clinic during the mid-portion of the COVID pandemic. This team rocks the world!!!
