2019 DAY OF INNOVATION AND SCIENCE
For the fourth consecutive year, the Day of Innovation and Science will be featured during the AVF 31st Annual Meeting. This highly informative, educational, all-inclusive forum is designed to identify current research priorities in venous and lymphatic diseases while also providing an educational component. This day-long forum will occur on February 19th, 2019 featuring valuable plenary sessions, each concluding with a half-hour, interactive structured discussion among the panelists and attendees.
Through participation in the Day of Innovation and Science, the representatives of these different sectors will address the state of the field, discuss next steps for closing knowledge gaps in the two highlighted areas, discover the role data can play in influencing positive changes, and ultimately identify what is needed to improve medical treatment of patients with venous and lymphatic disease.
The 2019 program subject this coming year is: Next Horizons for Small Veins and Lymphatics and will include a plenary update and discussion session and a Continuing Medical Education (CME) session with abstract presentations. During the sessions some of the following subjects/questions will be addressed by experts in the field: Medical management of lymphedema—is there a scientific basis?; Clinical classification of lymphatic disorders; Clinical classification of small vein disorders. The final remarks will address potential funding for these lymphatic and small vein disorders by an NIH representative, with a discussion on how to best position publications on lymphatic and small vein disorders for high impact journals.
Today we are creating this open discussion platform within the American Venous and invite all parties of the health system to participate: the future depends on what we learn from yesterday, and what we do today.
