Fall is in full swing and winter is not far behind. I am sure that all of us are occupied navigating the extremely challenging caseloads and work environments that are part of Vascular Surgery. As you prepare to head into the hectic holiday season I would encourage you to make plans now to attend the 43rd Annual Meeting of the Southern Association for Vascular Surgery. It will be the perfect venue to recharge your batteries after the holidays, reconnect with colleagues and friends, and advance your knowledge on important topics pertinent to our specialty.
