Abstract

The Society for Vascular Medicine was founded in 1989. During the subsequent 25 years, the Society has grown to approximately 500 members and has achieved international recognition while making important contributions to vascular disease education, clinical vascular medicine and biology research, and patient care. In celebration of the Society’s 25th anniversary, its past and current presidents reflect on the Society’s history, challenges, and achievements, and emphasize the vital role of the SVM in the discipline of vascular medicine.
