An open invitation from the President
of the Eastern Vascular Society,

Dear Friends and Colleagues,
In light of the need for social distancing and the travel bans many of our institutions have placed on us, the Eastern Vascular Executive Council has decided to postpone the 2020 “in person” Annual Meeting until September 24-27, 2021 in Charleston, SC. Please Save this date in your calendar.
We are excited to inform you of new and innovative plans for an Eastern Vascular 2020 Virtual Meeting. We are planning a webinar educational series, which will be held weekly, over the months of October and November this fall.
These October and November webinars will consist of a weekly 1.5-hour evening session which will be focused on specific topics with a combination of abstracts, invited talks, industry sponsored mini symposiums and debates and will be moderated by experts in the field with a lively question and answers sessions involving the panelists, speakers and questions from the audience. Sessions will be recorded and made available on the EVS website for our membership.
Anticipated topics will include Carotid/ Aortic Thoracic/ Aortic Abdominal/Peripheral Arterial Disease/ Dialysis Access/ Venous and Lymphatic Disease/ New Innovations and New Technology, Miscellaneous disease categories.
We hope these shorter education opportunities will be beneficial education for our members, and we can get together in person in 2021. Your continued support is greatly appreciated and essential to the success of our society.
