Healthcare Transitions in Peripheral Vascular Interventions
From the Chairman
Dear friends and colleagues,
It is with great pride and joy that the VIA Foundation invites you to join Western New York medical colleagues for the 12th Annual VIA symposium on April 14, 2018. This conference has become a cherished annual educational event in our medical community. Last year, it was attended by well over 200 medical providers.
This year, symposium faculty will share insights on updates and new advances in medical care including discussion on new technologies, treatment modalities and importance of multidisciplinary approach. They will focus on community-based amputation prevention program development, treatment of lower extremity arterial disease, venous disease, aneurysms, lymphedema and carotid artery disease. The program will also discuss use of non-invasive ultrasound for evaluation of arterial and venous disease. There will updates on pelvic congestion syndrome and uterine fibroid treatment.
This is a great platform to take part in discussing strategies to raise awareness of PAD, amputation prevention and importance of informal and formal multidisciplinary treatment approach. We invite like-minded colleagues to connect with each other to raise awareness of PAD and share VIA Foundation’s mission to reduce amputation rates in our Western New York community.
I am confident that you will find VIA Foundation faculty highly motivating and educational. I hope to see you at the event.
Azher Iqbal, MD
