2019 ANNUAL MEETING
The 43rd Annual Meeting of The Southern Association for Vascular Surgery will be held January 23-26, 2019 at the Boca Raton Hotel, Boca Raton, Florida. Please note that we needed to change our planned location from Puerto Rico to Florida due to the continued rebuilding in San Juan. We remain hopeful that we will return to the island in the near future to support their continued recovery. Details regarding the meeting in Florida and hotel registration information will be mailed in the fall. Make your plans now and block your schedule to attend this meeting. You should register early for the Annual Meeting and secure a room within the SAVS block as well as make your airline reservations early to obtain the best possible fares and itinerary.
