Celebrating Patient Empowerment | Recognizing Our Community | Looking to the Future
DATE AND TIME: THURSDAY, OCTOBER 29, 2020 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM PDT
You won’t get to ride a carousel for the Vascular Cures 2020 annual gala, but you can still join us in celebrating from anywhere in the world! This year we are focusing on the incredible impact patient empowerment can have on our healthcare system.
What We Do
Advance Patient-Centered ResearchOur Collaborative Patient-Centered Research Grants provide up to $100,000 to teams pursuing high impact pilot projects that have the potential for near term impact on vascular medicine.
Project Voice is the first national program to bring the power of the patient to vascular research and care. It combines digital health tools for people to manage their own health with online education and communities, and improves communication between doctors, patients and researchers.
Collaboration is the hallmark of the Vascular Cures Research Network which accelerates results by breaking down silos and leveraging shared resources. Our 2018 Vascular Research Summit and Patient-Reported Outcome Measures in PAD (PROM-PAD) Working Group will collectively bring together over 50 organizations (academic institutions, government, industry, and patients) to discuss and drive solutions for the most pressing problems in the vascular field today.
These are just a few faces of the millions of Americans facing vascular disease, such as stroke, aneurysm and pulmonary artery disease. Each one has their own unique story about their battle with vascular disease and their road to recovery.
Caring for patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD) costs upwards of $21 Billion each year. Your support helps develop better treatments and improve outcomes.
