SAVS Makes Pledge to SVS Foundation
The Southern Association for Vascular Surgery (SAVS) recently made a generous $25,000 pledge to the SVS Foundation. SAVS joins the Eastern Vascular Society, Midwestern Vascular Surgical Society, New England Society for Vascular Surgery, and the Western Vascular Society in support of funding awards for vascular scientists to conduct clinical and basic research. Uniting through the SVS Foundation strengthens the specialty's ability to keep the pipeline of innovative researchers open. Please consider making an individual donation in support of this important goal.
Nov. 11: Deadline for FEVAR Writing Group Volunteers
SVS is seeking interested individuals to serve on two new writing groups
  • Reporting standards for fenestrated endovascular aneurysm repair (FEVAR)
  • FEVAR practice guidelines

FEVAR is soon expected to become more widely used for the treatment of juxtarenal and suprarenal aneurysms, making both reporting standards and guidelines necessary. Applicants should have experience in clinical research methodology and guideline development as well as FEVAR expertise. The writing groups will meet for several hours, usually by teleconference, over the next six to 12 months. 


To be considered for either writing group complete a short application by November 11.  

Electronic voting is now open until November 30 for the at-large member of the 2014 SVS Nominating Committee at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/99CMHSV.
Submit an abstract for the upcoming 28th Annual Vascular Research Initiatives Conference to be held April 30, 2014 in Toronto, Canada by January 17. 
Applications for the Research Seed Grant are due by January 17.
