The American Venous Forum (AVF), is dedicated to improving the care of patients with venous and lymphatic disease.

Founded in 1987, AVF fosters cutting edge research and clinical innovation and educates health care professionals, patients and policy makers about venous and lymphatic diseases.  

AVF's leadership and membership are recognized internationally as thought leaders, expert investigators and clinicians in venous and lymphatic disease.

As the field of venous and lymphatic disease grows, the AVF continues to lead by:

  • Providing interactive and hands-on education to physicians and fellows
  • Developing the first online venous registry to ultimately improve patient care
  • Building multi-specialty coalitions to advocate for improvements in venous and lymphatic disease
  • Increasing its patient outreach through expansion of its screening program
