Alabama Vascular Society

Annual Meeting - August 3-4, 2023

Welcome Letter from Benjamin J. Pearce

Benjamin J. Pearce, MD FACS

While the history of the Alabama Vascular Society is still in the making, the history of Vascular surgery in our beautiful home state is incredibly rich.   We are fortunate to practice in a community that is diverse in population, faiths, backgrounds and ideas.  But what ties all Alabamians together is a desire to be there for each other in good times and in bad.   Similarly, the academic and community vascular practices in Alabama rely upon each other to deliver quality care to our patients.
