Congratulations to Katharine McGinigle, MD, MPH, Associate Professor in the Division of Vascular Surgery. Dr. McGinigle received an award from the Society for Vascular Surgery Foundation (SVS) for her work entitled, “Using Precision Medicine to Define Adaptive Treatment Strategies for Patients with Chronic Limb-Threatening Ischemia.” The award is in the amount of $25,000.
The mission of the SVS Foundation is to optimize the vascular health and well-being of patients and the public through the support of research that leads to discovery of knowledge and innovative strategies, as well as education and programs, to prevent and treat circulatory disease.
Vascular surgeons are among the most highly trained of all medical professionals. Those who research vascular disease spend years finding new ways to treat the tiny veins and arteries that provide our life’s blood.
Today, thanks to innovations, inventions, and the brilliance of history-making scientists and surgeons, many more vascular patients live full and healthy lives. In addition, the Foundation supports community education programming aimed at decreasing the number of patients who require surgery.
The SVS Foundation, an arm of the Society for Vascular Surgery, partners with surgeons, researchers, government agencies, and other groups to provide essential support for this life-saving science and community outreach.
