35th Annual Meeting of the EVS At the Belmond Charleston Place, SC

 September 23-26, 2021

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

On behalf of the Eastern Vascular Society, we are pleased to invite you to participate in the 35th Annual Meeting. The meeting this year will be held September 23rd to 26th, 2021 at the BELMOND Charleston Place in Charleston, SC, as well as broadcast virtually and archived on our website. In our 2020 virtual-only meeting, we had over 475 registrants for the meeting. We are looking forward to hosting even more participants from the eastern region of the United States and Canada in our hybrid virtual and in-person meeting. As the year progresses, please be sure to visit our website at events.easternvascular.org for regular updates.

The EVS meeting will offer information regarding the care of vascular conditions and will allow vascular surgeons and other Allied health professionals to remain current on the latest knowledge, approaches, and procedures that will lead to better patient care. Due to an ever-increasing prevalence of vascular disease in our society, there has never been a more challenging time to be a vascular surgeon or a time when it has been more critical to keep abreast of developments in the field. The introduction of Maintenance of Certification and increasing multi-specialty competition in our current healthcare system poses new challenges and makes further education on cutting-edge approaches to the treatment of vascular disease essential.

During the 7 weeks of the 2020 virtual meeting, we had over 1129 participant visits, with 177 unique participants during our educational sessions on the 3 Saturdays, also 44 Abstract Presentations, 19 ExpertLectures, Virtual Poster Hall, and an opportunity for members and trainees to review presentations on-demand.

This 4-day meeting will be at the Belmond Charleston Place in beautiful Charleston, SC. We have reserved the entire massive ballroom area, as well as multiple side rooms, and an outdoor courtyard to allow for social distancing if required. We will have a spacious trade show vendor area as well as a dynamic interactive virtual trade show allowing industry to showcase their products.

We are looking forward to seeing you in person in Charleston or virtually from the leisure of your home.

Your continued support is greatly appreciated and essential to the success of our society.

Sincerely,
James McKinsey, MD
President, Eastern Vascular Society

PROGRAM OBJECTIVES

The specialty of vascular surgery has matured and evolved dramatically over the last three decades, but never more profoundly than in recent years. In view of the rapid development of novel, evolving technologies; the generation of information at a rate faster than at any time in history; and the unprecedented growth of the elderly segment of our population in whom circulatory disease predominates, there has never been a more challenging time to be a vascular surgeon or a time when it has been more critical to keep abreast of developments in the field. The introduction of Maintenance of Certification and increasing multi-specialty competition in our current healthcare system poses new challenges, and make further education on cutting-edge approaches to the treatment of vascular disease essential. The Annual Meeting of the EVS will allow vascular surgeons and other Allied Health Professionals to remain current on the latest knowledge, approaches, and procedures that will lead to better patient care.

ATTENDANCE

The meeting will draw primarily from the EVS membership, including practicing vascular surgeons and vascular trainees, which is represented in the Mid-Atlantic and Eastern states, as well as Eastern Canada. The meeting is also open to Non-member Physicians, Residents and fellows, Students, RVTs, Nurses and other Allied Health Professionals. Projected attendance for 2021: 400-500. Being hybrid, we hope to draw virtual attendance from all over the world with more diversity. The Eastern Vascular Society is the largest Regional Vascular Meeting in the US.
