Odile Enjolras, MD Travel Award

In the spirit of Dr. Odile Enjolras, this award is intended for applicants who have demonstrated interest in propagating knowledge and treatment in the field of Vascular Anomalies in under-served areas. The travel award is intended to offset fees for registration and travel to an individual who can prove their participation in the clinical care of patients with vascular anomalies and/or published research. In addition to our 2020 recipient, ISSVA will be offering one travel award to offset costs to attend the ISSVA World Congress 2022: The Latest in Vascular Anomalies to be held in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada 10-13 May 2022.

Paradigms include:

•   Introduction of a new model for training or treatment
•   Development of a new protocol for evaluation or treatment
•   Establishment of a treatment facility in their country
•   Creation of a Training Module, published chapter, or other specific evidence of prior interest in vascular tumors or malformations

In order to accomplish these goals, the award recipient is expected to attend both the pre-congress day on Tuesday, 10 May, along with the full congress, which runs from 11-13 May 2022.

Applications are Due: 01 December 2021
