Plan to Attend the International Forum


As SVS international membership has grown, so has the Vascular Annual Meeting’s international programming. The International Forum, open to all and held from 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm on Wednesday, June 4, will feature 11 presentations from researchers throughout the world. Moderated by Frank Veith, MD, and a distinguished panel of presidents and officers of SVS international chapters, the Forum is “an opportunity to exchange information with our international colleagues to learn and to teach,” said Juan Parodi, MD, International Relations Committee co-chair. A reception for international attendees will immediately follow the International Forum.

The international scholars will also be recognized at the Forum. The international scholar program awards four $5,000 scholarships to emerging talent worldwide so that they may attend the Vascular Annual Meeting and visit clinics and universities throughout the United States and Canada. Applications to attend next year’s Vascular Annual Meeting are due by June 14, apply now.

The transatlantic debates, organized with the European Society for Vascular Surgery, promise to be a provocative session on the treatment of thoracoabdominal aneurysms, renal artery stenosis and popliteal artery aneurysms. This session will be held from 3:30 pm – 5:00 pm on Friday, June 6.

Remember the International Forum when making travel plans and check out the entire international program while at the Vascular Annual Meeting.

“It’s instructive – and also entertaining – to get differing viewpoints,” Glenn LaMuraglia, MD, co-chair, says. “The Vascular Annual Meeting is a great forum for exchanging ideas, and the international program is an opportunity to partake in a global vascular fellowship.”
