New SVS president outlines priorities for his tenure as Society aims to reach out


Michael Dalsing, MD, who took over as Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS) president at the 2022 Vascular Annual Meeting (VAM) in Boston (June 15–18), talks about the priorities he has set out for his time at the helm, which include advocating for vascular surgery amid the recurring threat of Medicare payment cuts, furthering the Society’s efforts to build brand awareness of the specialty, and contributing to the quest to broaden access to quality vascular care.

At VAM 2022, Dalsing put together this year’s E. Stanley Crawford Critical Issues Forum, which took a deep dive into some of the issues that hinder better availability of vascular surgical care in different geographical and cultural settings across the country. The Crawford Forum is customarily organized by the incoming SVS president.
