Dr Brian Santin was recently invited to serve on two national committees for the Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS). Dr Santin’s work and contributions will be essential in laying the groundwork for a high standard of care on both the Community Practice Committee as well as the Leadership Development and Diversity Committee.
Founded in 1947, SVS fosters cutting edge research and clinical innovation and educates health care professionals, patients and policy makers about vascular (artery and vein) disorders. With over 5,600 active members, the SVS is considered by many leaders in the field to be the preeminent vascular specific organization.
Each commitment is a one-year term, commencing at the Society for Vascular Surgery’s Annual Meeting held in Boston this month.
SVS’s leadership and membership are recognized internationally as thought leaders, expert investigators and clinicians in vascular disease.
As the field of vascular surgery grows, the SVS seeks to advance excellence and innovation in vascular health:
- Provide, encourage and improve dissemination of knowledge concerning all aspects of vascular disease and health.
- Promote the development and implementation of new technology for diagnosis and treatment of vascular disease.
- Enhance the ability to provide cate and serve disparate communities through a commitment to diversity and inclusion
- Increasing its patient outreach through expansion of its screening program
Despite the medical advances of the past two decades, vascular disease still remains underestimated for its effects on public health. Experts believe that at least 12 million people of the U.S. population suffer this disease. It is the SVS’s membership that moves and drives the advancement of vascular health through various initiatives.
