SVS Past President Peter Gloviczki, MD, will perform his award-winning magic as the special guest at the SVS Political Action Committee (PAC) reception during the Vascular Annual Meeting.
All SVS members who have contributed to the PAC since January 2016 – including those who donate during VAM ‘17 — are invited.
(The SVS PAC booth will be located outside the hall hosting the plenary sessions.)
Contributions can be made by mail with a personal check using the PAC donation form [PDF] or by credit/debit card at www.vascular.org/pac-donation. All SVS members who contribute to the PAC will receive pins, be recognized at the 2017 VAM and in the PAC Annual Report, in addition to being invited to the reception.
All PAC contributions are used to gain access to Congressional members and non-incumbent candidates in both political parties who make decisions about our issues. Although SVS has achieved many legislative victories, such as the repeal of the Sustainable Growth Rate formula that determined Medicare reimbursement, we have important issues to support/oppose. These include repealing the Independent Payment Advisory Board and preventing Medicare and imaging cuts.
