Message Boards

Many of us have been reaching out to one another via email, Facetime, Zoom, etc. to get updates about how people are doing and just to connect with one another. For this reason, we have launched an ISSVA message board with the intent of increasing that communication. We can, over time, create other subjects for ISSVA members to post e.g. topics related to vascular anomalies, however for now, feel free to participate and let us know how you're doing. Visit the Message Boards (log-in required).
