Our Vision: To promote venous and lymphatic health
Our Mission: Advance science, education and advocacy in venous and lymphatic disease
Founded in 1987, The American Venous Forum (AVF), is dedicated to improving the care of patients with venous and lymphatic disease. The AVF fosters cutting edge research and clinical innovation and educates health care professionals, patients and policy makers about venous and lymphatic diseases.
The AVF’s leaders and members are recognized internationally as thought leaders, expert investigators and clinicians in venous and lymphatic disease. As the field of venous and lymphatic disease grows, the AVF continues to lead by providing interactive and hands-on education for physicians and fellows from around the world. We are building multi-specialty coalitions to create guidelines, promote appropriate use criteria and advocate for improvements in venous and lymphatic disease. The AVF is also the leader in dedicated venous research funding.
