AVA Scientific Meeting 2013


From Liz Donnellan: "Being immersed in a complete Vascular Access specific environment was AN AWAKENING EXPERIENCE for me. Through the keynote speakers, poster presentations, round table discussions, break out sessions and networking, I have gained the self confidence to practice as a total Vascular Access Specialist."

From Emily Richmond: "Attending AVA conference was a WONDERFUL experience! From all the informational sessions to being able to network with colleagues in my specific field was very beneficial to my career. Having attended several INS conferences, I prefer the MORE STREAMLINED ASPECT OF AVA. The multi-discipline networking was a great way to expand my knowledge and I was able to walk away with wealth of information and experience."

From Carrie Moyer: "One word to express my thoughts from the 2013 AVA Scientific Meeting: INCREDIBLE! From the presenters, the poster presentations, the exhibit hall, the collaboration with fellow healthcare workers from around the world, all made this event VERY EXCITING. Interesting and qualified speakers. I now have the resources and confidence in vascular access. I was lucky to share the experience with other co-workers. We had a lot of FUN and were able to share points each of us found interesting and how we could apply it to our department. I can say I am proud to be a member of IVAN and hope to keep active with up and coming events they provide."
