AIUM also selected her as one of the 2019 Presidential Recognition Award recipients for her contributions to the growth and development of medical ultrasound. They have recognized her as an extremely active member within the organization and very deserving of this award which has been given annually since 1977. She expressed her gratitude, saying, "I have truly enjoyed the volunteer opportunities I have engaged in at the AIUM, especially serving as 2nd Vice President. It is such an honor to receive the Presidential Recognition Award."

At AHU, Henningsen serves as the Director for the Center for Advanced Ultrasound Education (CAUE) and for Faculty Development in Teaching & Learning. We could not be more pleased to have such an accomplished woman as one of our educators, and look forward to her continuing contributions to the incredible field of Diagnostic Medical Sonography.
