Register Today for VRIC

Register today for the May 3 Vascular Research Initiatives Conference. 
The one-day meeting -- held the day before the American Heart Association's Arteriorsclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology Scientific Sessions -- emphasizes emerging vascular science. It is considered a key event for meeting and reconnecting with vascular research collaborators. 
New this year is the Alexander W. Clowes Distinguished Lecture, honoring the legacy of vascular surgeon-scientist Alec Clowes, M.D. William Sessa, Ph.D., of Yale University School of Medicine, will deliver the inaugural lecture, titled, "New Insights in Arteriogenesis and Blood Flow Control."
The translational panel will discuss "Matrix Revolution: Vascular Repair and Regeneration," in a session co-sponsored with the International Society for Applied Cardiovascular Biology. SVS President Ronald Fairman, M.D., will moderate with Robert T. Tranquillo, Ph.D. Four abstract sessions will focus on vascular endothelium and thrombosis, aortic and arterial pathology, stem cells and tissue engineering, and peripheral arterial disease.

Inter-Society News & Updates

1. April is Limb Loss Awareness Month


Approximately 2.1 million people in the U.S. are amputees and, of them, more than half have lost a limb to vascular disease. To raise awareness of these patients, the nonprofit Amputee Coalition is working to educate the public on limb loss, its prevention and treatment.
 
In conjunction with the coalition's Limb Loss Awareness Month, the organization has shared an informative infographic that we encourage you to print for your office or share with colleagues.

Please also share with patients the link below, to the SVS patient information page on amputations.
