Overseeing governance and expanding SVS footprint

By Beth Bales

The Policy and Advocacy Council is composed of the leaders of the Coding and Reimbursement, Government Relations, PAC, Quality and Performance Measures, and VA Vascular Surgeons committees.

In effect, the umbrella body supports each of the committees, coordinating efforts across them and communicating on their behalf to the Executive Board, says council chair Matthew Sideman, MD.

In 2021, the council aims to actively pursue expanding the footprint of the Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS) as influential leaders in healthcare policy. “We will identify national volunteer leadership opportunities for our members and advocate for their placements to achieve this goal,” explains Sideman.
