To register, see .

Dr. Stephen Daugherty and the American College of Phlebology (APC) invite all physicians to “Raise your Voice” as the New Horizon at the 32nd Annual Congress approaches.

More than 1,000 medical practitioners and 400 industry experts specializing in venous and lymphatic disease will gather this year to discuss the latest in healthcare policy and advocacy, to debate the latest research and to learn the latest approaches in caring for those affected with these chronic and debilitating conditions.

“This year’s Annual Congress is one of the most comprehensive programs in our history covering all aspects of venous and lymphatic medicine,” Dr. Daugherty said.  “In addition, the 32nd Annual Congress is also packed with numerous opportunities for society members to gather and socialize among peers, to build relationships and to learn from each other.

The Welcome Reception is planned for Wednesday evening, Nov. 7, and this year’s Annual Congress starts at 8 a.m. Thursday morning, Nov. 8. The Congress concludes at noon Sunday, Nov. 11, after the first Venous and Lymphatic Village at the Congress. “You do not want to miss this great new addition to the Congress.”

The Venous and Lymphatic Village opens at 9 a.m. Sunday, and provides an opportunity for attendees to participate in an exchange of information between expert practitioners and industry experts in an interactive and casual setting.

The “Village” will be divided into multiple “neighborhoods” based on particular venous and lymphatic conditions such as thrombosis, chronic venous obstruction, small veins, compression and wound care, superficial vein treatment, and pelvic venous reflux.

Within each neighborhood will be various experts and representatives to answer any questions or demonstrate and offer hands-on instruction for various techniques and tools for venous and lymphatic treatment.

The ACP Foundation Silent Auction will return this year, and the ACP Foundation Fun Run & Walk will be Saturday, Nov. 10. VTN
