Programs and Awards
Even though the United States spends more on health care per capital than any other nation, we still have many underserved populations that don’t get proper medical attention or vascular care. Sadly, many of these patients will suffer a stroke, or lose a limb or their lives. Learn how the SVS Foundation VISTA program addresses these concerns.
Hurricanes, tornadoes, wildfires and other disasters can wreak havoc for vascular patients. This Foundation fund helps those with urgent needs.
This lecture program, offered annual at the Vascular Research Initiatives Conference, is in memory of Dr. Alec Clowes, professor of surgery at the University of Washington and an internationally recognized vascular surgeon-scientist whose ground-breaking work spanned more than three decades and who had a profound impact on the specialty, the Society for Vascular Surgery and its Foundation.
