Award Deadline: April 22, 2015 through June 19, 2015 - 5:00 pm Central (Deadline Extended)
The Coffman Award recognizes the research and backgound of an outstanding PVD student/trainee member or early career investigator member and encourages participation in AHA Scientific Sessions. The winner will be honored at the PVD Council Dinner at Scientific Sessions in November.
This award is named in memory of Dr. Jay D. Coffman, former chief of the Peripheral Vascular Section at Boston University School of Medicine and a pioneer in the field of peripheral vascular medicine. Dr. Coffman's research accomplishments focused on the physiology and pathophysiology of peripheral blood flow and his career exemplified the ideal of translating research findings directly to the care of patients. He fostered understanding atherosclerosis as a systemic disease and nurtured the discipline of vascular medicine as a clinical subspecialty. Dr. Coffman was an influential medical investigator, an outstanding clinician, and a treasured educator and mentor.
