Vision & Mission

The AVLS’ mission is simple, but powerful: to advance venous and lymphatic care.

Our vision is to be an indispensable resource for our members for education, knowledge exchange, and practice management; a powerful advocate for excellence in vein care; and a leader in basic and clinical research in vein care.

The AVLS Board of Directors approved a 2018-2023 Strategic Plan to provide guidance and direction for the organization. View the complete strategic plan.
