Dear Dr. Zimmet,
On behalf of the American Venous Forum (AVF) Board of Directors and the AVF Distinguished Fellows Committee, I would like congratulate you on being selected as a Distinguished Fellow Member of the AVF!
As an organization, the AVF is dedicated to improving the health of patients suffering from disorders of the venous and lymphatic systems. Your outstanding history of membership in the Forum, and your remarkable achievements in the field of venous and lymphatic medicine, has proven your right to earn this premier member status.
As part of your election as a Distinguished Fellow Member in the American Venous Forum, you are hereby invited to attend the American Venous Forum 28th Annual Meeting to be held February 24-26, 2016 at the Buena Vista Palace Hotel in Orlando, Florida. During the Member’s Business Luncheon, you will be formally recognized in front of your fellow AVF members. However, your member status with the AVF will change immediately.
Congratulations once again upon your selection and we look forward to your continuing contributions to AVF and to the field in the future.
John Blebea, MD, MBA, President, American Venous Forum
Anthony Comerota, MD, Distinguished Fellows Committee, Chair
