2021 Annual Meeting

At this time, it is the Society's plan to move forward with an in-person Annual Meeting this October 15-17, 2021 at the beautiful Cliff House in Cape Neddick, Maine. With that said, the safety of our members and attendees is of the utmost importance, so we will continue to monitor the ever-changing pandemic closely and will communicate any updates as decisions are made by the Executive Council.

The NESVS Annual Meeting is designed to provide 2.5 days of comprehensive education for the benefit of those involved in the study, treatment and cure of vascular disease.

Past Distinguished Lecturers

Past Linton Lecturers

The Presidential Address for the 2020 Annual Meeting of the New England Society for Vascular Surgery was given this September by Dr. Marc Schermerhorn (Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center). The year 2020 has been marked by many forces changing society, from the pandemic to politics - but none of these forces are as important as the new awareness of racism and the systemic perverse effects of racism in our society. Dr. Schermerhorn gives us a new look at racism and how it is deeply imbedded within our culture, forcing all of us to address it now. This NESVS Presidential Address speaks for us all.
