Why Attend an AVA Conference?

I would not think about missing the AVA Conference. I simply learn too much, meet too many people, renew acquaintances, and network. The atmosphere is awesome and fun.

The conference provides me with the most up-to-date VAD information that I am able to bring back to my community and share with others, enabling us to provide better patient care in vascular access.

Each different discipline looks at the subject of vascular access from a different point of view. This multidisciplinary approach in looking at vascular access allows each of us to become aware of issues we have never even considered.
