March 1 happens to be the first day to register for the 2012 Vascular Annual Meeting®. Both online registration and housing reservations will become available on March 1 for the June 7-9, 2012 meeting in Maryland.
“We anticipate excellent attendance at this year’s annual meeting,” states program chairperson Ronald Fairman, MD. “Our program committee is introducing two new abstract topics – Complications; and Comparative Effectiveness: Open vs. Endovascular. We believe that these additions will encourage new areas of discussion among attendees.”
The Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center meeting venue in National Harbor, Maryland is across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C. The luxury resort provides SVS members with 21st century meeting facilities. CME credit is available for Vascular Annual Meeting attendees.
March 1 is also the deadline for receipt of two SVS award applications – the Lifetime Achievement Award and the Medal for Innovation in Vascular Surgery. Nomination criteria and application forms for these prestigious awards appear online.
