Invitation to Join the International Society for Women Vascular Surgeons
Dear Esteemed Colleagues,
On behalf of the International Society for Women Vascular Surgeons (ISWVS), it is with great pleasure that we extend an invitation to you to join us at our 2023 Annual Meeting. This year's gathering promises to be an enlightening and collaborative experience, bringing together women vascular surgeons, aspiring professionals, and all dedicated to the field from around the world.
The ISWVS Annual Meeting will take place on May 3rd and 4th, 2024, providing an excellent opportunity for us to come together and advance our shared mission. The venue for our meeting is the Hyatt Rosemont, a near the Chicago O'Hare Airport, which has been chosen to foster an environment of camaraderie and knowledge exchange.
Our society is committed to inclusivity, recognizing that excellence in vascular surgery is a collective effort. We welcome not only women and men vascular surgeons but also trainees, students, nurses, and diverse health professionals who contribute to the comprehensive care of vascular patients. We encourage non-members and colleagues from various medical disciplines to attend and enrich our discussions.
The ISWVS Annual Meeting will feature thought-provoking sessions on various topics, with a particular focus on vascular differences in women vs men and Career Development and Diversity in Vascular Surgery for Women.
As we look ahead to 2024, our society has set ambitious goals, including the formation of a new society just for Women Vascular Surgeons, and formation of new committees to expand our membership and strengthen our presence in the global vascular community. We aim to forge closer collaborations with industry partners and achieve the publication of our meeting abstracts in an internationally recognized journal.
We anticipate an exceptional year for the ISWVS, and your participation in the Annual Meeting is instrumental in helping us achieve our objectives. We are eager to welcome you to Chicago and look forward to engaging in valuable discussions, forging new connections, and collectively advancing the field of women vascular surgery.
See you in Chicago!
Linda Harris, President, International Society for Women Vascular Surgeons (ISWVS)
