Westminster High School Ultrasound Workshop

This past month, 8 UCI medical students reached out to students at Westminster High School to put on a hands on ultrasound workshop. The medical students taught a small group of high school students the basics of ultrasound and also practice on models, one of which was pregnant! UCI USIG is grateful to Mindray, which donated two of their machines for this event.
