The Venous Health Inequities (VHI) session at VENOUS2024 should not be missed! Special abstracts addressing research on healthcare disparities will be presented, along with special talks discussing pertinent contemporary issues identifying vulnerable populations affected by venous disease, exploring hurdles to access to venous care, tackling the lack of dissemination of venous education among patients and providers, and much, much more.

In conjunction with the VHI session, the first AVF Day of Service will be held, promoting venous health and education within the Tampa community. The AVF Task Force on Venous Health Inequities has worked diligently with community leaders and faculty from Tampa General Hospital (TGH) and the University of South Florida (USF) to bring awareness of venous disease and access to venous treatment to underserved areas of Tampa. Through educational sessions, the committee and faculty from TGH and USF will provide anyone interested in the community– patients and providers alike–education on venous disease and where, practically, to be evaluated. At each annual meeting going forward, we hope to host similar events where we will be able to provide this type of venous education outreach to the communities who need it the most.

We will share more about the Day of Service and its impact during the Venous Health Inequities Session on Monday, March 4th at 8:30am EST.
