AVS 2020 ANNUAL MEETING UPDATE

We are sorry to have to announce that in light of current and possible future COVID-19 surges, we have decided to postpone the Alabama Vascular Society Annual Meeting to NEXT YEAR August 6-7, 2021. It will be held at the Ross Bridge Resort, Birmingham, AL.

It is unfortunate that we have to take a year off, but we believe that this is the best move for the health & safety of everyone given current surges in coronavirus cases in Alabama.

We thank Ross Bridge Resort for their willingness to work with us and postpone our meeting to next year. We thank our faculty for making this difficult decision and we thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to navigate this unprecedented situation together.

Please be sure to mark your calendars now for August 6-7, 2021 - And until we see each other again, be safe, and be well everyone!
