HGTC seeking volunteers for free ultrasound program

Grand Strand

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WBTW) – Local moms-to-be are getting a free chance to see their unborn child and also helping students at Horry-Georgetown Tech practice their skills. 

Horry-Georgetown Tech is offering the ultrasound appointments Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Pampas Drive location near the Market Common.

“The more practice they get, the more ready they are once they graduate from our program.  So, it’s a crucial part to be able to practice all parts of ultrasound, and OB is a very important part of it,” said Program Director Caryn Atkins

Students are supervised by a registered sonography instructor, and the ultrasounds are free to mothers 20 weeks in to their pregnancy who have record of prenatal ultrasound with a primary physician.

You can call 843-477-2181 for an appointment.
