In-person: We are meeting in person and with Ted’s! Doors open at 5:45 pm and the presentation will begin at 6:15 pm.

OSS members will be meeting at OSU-OKC 440 N Portland Avenue OKC, OK 73107 on the 1st floor room #AH1300.

Presentation and Objectives:
The fabulous OUHSC Sonography students will be presenting their capstone presentations for us again. The OSS Officers have always loved these presentations and there is always something new we learn every year. Come ready to learn and be blown away!

Objectives at the bottom.

OSS members:
Coming in person:
Please RSVP here via Eventbright so we can order enough food.


If you have food restrictions we may or may not be able to accommodate, please let us know so we can try.
Sign in to the sign-in sheet and make sure your registration information is correct.

Joining by Zoom:
We have your information so there is no need to RSVP. We will mark your attendance when you join the meeting. Just be sure your FIRST and LAST name is used as your Zoom name when you join the meeting, otherwise, we will not know it is you and we cannot mark you as attended.
Spread the good word! Only 99 people can join this meeting via ZOOM so keep that in mind.
You will not be marked as attended if you are not present in the first 15 minutes of the ZOOM presentation.

Non-OSS member: Join us! It’s easy. You are welcome to attend our meetings, but unless you pay the annual dues you will not receive a CME and you cannot eat the meals we provide. Of course, you can bring your own and participate, but we really encourage you to become a member and contribute to Oklahoma sonographers’ continuing education growth and your own.
