Women’s Vascular Summit: Diving into issues around women’s vascular health and the female workforce


The Women’s Vascular Summit was established five years ago with the twin purposes of delving deeper into the issues that surround women’s vascular health and disparate outcomes, and establishing a venue where women vascular surgeons could help elevate and empower each other to further their careers in what remains a male-dominated environment.

Ahead of the 2023 iteration (April 28–29), which is again set to take place in Buffalo, New York, meeting founder and course director Linda Harris, MD, tells Vascular Specialist about why the meeting came to be, and how it is being used to advance the cause of greater diversity and equity among the vascular workforce, and solve enduring disparities in vascular disease outcomes.
