The SVS Foundation leadership announced that the Society for Clinical Vascular Surgery (SCVS) has pledged $50,000 to the Foundation. This generous contribution funds clinical and basic vascular surgery research awards that benefit not only the people who receive them, but the entire vascular health community. The research conducted by the recipients is invaluable and allows the specialty to develop talented vascular scientists for now and in the future. SCVS joins the following societies in demonstrating the specialty’s commitment to quality patient care: Midwestern Vascular Surgical Society, New England Vascular Surgical Society, Peripheral Vascular Surgery Society, Southern Association for Vascular Surgery Eastern Vascular Society, and Western Vascular Society.
The SVS Foundation thanks the members and leadership of SCVS and the societies who have united in this important mission. SCVS is now included in the SVS Foundation Legacy Program, President’s Circle.
