What made it so great? We saw old friends and made new ones, VSS was well represented this year just like in past years, heard from amazing lecturers, and had a great time presenting at this year’s ACP (American College of Phlebology) Annual Meeting as well. For those who do not know what ACP is, it is an educational opportunity through lectures, research, mentoring and learning about the latest advances in vein care And it’s exciting to bring these advances home to Macon, Warner Robins and to the Vein Specialists of the South team and patients.
The ACP annual congress is a unique event which exceeds our expectations every year. It has been transformational for both our lives and the practice. From the early years, Dr. Harper and his staff would return home to Macon energized to provide the best vein care. Dr. Harper’s Phlebology colleagues became lifelong friends. Encouraging and passionate about our careers and patients, we have shared our passion and expertise with each other over the years.
Our staff that attended this year was Dr. Harper and Terri, of course, Elizabeth Milligan RN, BSN and our Clinical Supervisor, and Brenda Hutcheson, RN, BSN.
This year, our VSS team was lecturing about unusual findings in the world of phlebology, sclerotherapy and its process and greatness, office procedure protocols and set-up, tumescent anesthesia, and red flags in the post-operative patient.
But what is even more amazing than our VSS team lecturing, was that Terri was awarded for being the allied health section chair and did a phenomenal job and she was recognized for being an outstanding volunteer! We could not be more proud of the Dr. and Terri Harper and the entire team that was representing VSS at that ACP Annual Congress Meeting.
We cannot wait to knock our ACP socks off again next year!
Dr. Kenneth Harper, founder of Vein Specialists of the South, has evaluated more than 22,000 patients and performed over 18,000 procedures since 2000.
