I am delighted to serve as Chairperson of the Council on Peripheral Vascular Disease for the term 2011-2013. The PVD Council is a vibrant and growing council, and I look forward to your active participation.
Please plan to attend the 2012 American Heart Association Scientific Sessions Nov. 4-7, in Los Angeles, Calif. Our Council is planning an exciting program for the Peripheral Vascular Disease track. Our highly successful Fellows-in-Training Workshop will be held at Scientific Sessions in 2012. This workshop provides the latest information about peripheral vascular diseases presented by leading experts. The 2012 Fellows-in-Training Workshop will also include discussion regarding career advancement for early career members of our council. I look forward to seeing you in Los Angeles.
Please save the date for our joint meeting with ATVB, May 1-3 in 2013. Special programming will be in place for PVD Council members.
Please be sure to visit the PVD Council’s website for additional news about our council in the coming year.
I look forward to working with you toward a rewarding and productive year for the Peripheral Vascular Disease council.
Mary M. McDermott, MD, FAHA
