The 2023 Society for Vascular Surgery’s Vascular Annual Meeting will end its first full day on Wednesday with an outdoor networking event—food and drink, games, entertainment, artist demonstrations and more—for attendees and their families.
The inaugural SVS [email protected]: Building Community is set for 7 to 9 p.m. EDT June 14 on the Potomac Terrace at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center. “We want our attendees to balance their VAM experience,” said Andres Schanzer, MD, chair of the SVS Program Committee, which plans much of VAM’s sessions. “Besides education, there is also connecting with others and taking the time to recharge. Seeing friends and making new friends is a huge part of VAM. We want to double down on that experience.”
Due to the generous help from VAM sponsors, Terumo Aortic and Philips, admission to the event is free. Space is limited, so it’s a good idea to reserve your spot early. All attendees are welcome to bring family members. The festivities will include food stations, games, entertainment, and other activities that will remind attendees of a summertime block party. “People may not have a chance earlier than Wednesday to connect with their friends and colleagues,” said Schanzer. “This will provide a great opportunity to do so.
