Opening Doors To New Horizons


SVS FOUNDATION BOARD OF DIRECTORS

What a year! We struggled with the pandemic and its effects; however, we were able to gather together at the Vascular Annual Meeting once more. And the important work of the SVS Foundation took some big steps forward, thanks to both the support and innovative ideas of our members.

YOU are the key to the SVS Foundation

CORE MISSION OF THE SVS F O U N D AT I O N To optimize the vascular health and well-being of patients and the public through support of research that leads to discovery of knowledge and innovative strategies, as well as education and programs, to prevent and treat circulatory disease.

I particularly want to offer a big thanks to Drs. Peter Nelson and Thomas Forbes for their hard work on the SVS Foundation Development Committee. The old saying— and one of my favorites—is “no money, no mission.” Over this past fiscal year, the SVS Foundation increased its member donations from 17 to 26 percent of SVS members, including contributions from 75 percent of past awardees. The endowment also survived the pandemic and is in good shape, although we always can use more endowment for our many new projects. We launched a new initiative, VISTA—Vascular Volunteers In Service to All (with the moniker “lend a hand to save a limb”)—to address the significant disparities in access to vascular health care across the United States. Social scientists know that a person’s ZIP code is a better predictor of health than his or her genetic code. VISTA is a way to try to even the scales and put some much-needed balance into vascular health care. The program is led by Jens Jorgensen, MD, who proposed it to the SVS and Foundation several years ago. Fortunately, the Foundation had already funded several pilot programs on limb ischemia in underserved communities, so those pilot programs have become the initial VISTA programs. The Foundation will provide outreach and screening, starting with our first pilot project in Oklahoma, which has one of the largest populations of underserved Native American Chronic Limb-Threatening Ischemia patients in the country. We also are taking a look at all of our grants, awards and programs, to assess their success and continued relevance, and we’re investigating new programs as well. Perhaps an idea or two now percolating below the surface will eventually help unlock the keys to vascular disease in the future. The work we fund yields an impressive return on investment. As reported at VAM and in these pages, the Foundation K Awards Program is highly effective in developing vascular surgeon-scientists, with a nearly 9.5-fold return on investment. Despite those impressive results, retention of awardees in research is an important new focus of the Foundation. Remember that YOU are the key to the SVS Foundation. Your participation is key, as well as the amount you give. We will not be satisfied until 100 percent of our members contribute! Please visit vascular.org/svsfoundation to learn more about our mission, programs and funds. Find something you’re interested in and donate today. The future of our specialty and the vascular health of our society is counting on it. Yours truly,

Peter F. Lawrence, MD Chair, SVS Foundation

With Foundation help, More Vascular Care Coming to Oklahoma There are new vistas In Oklahoma for those in need of vascular care. That’s “vista” as in Vascular Volunteers In Service To All— VISTA—a new initiative of the SVS Foundation whose mission is “to provide better vascular care to underserved populations in the United States, said Dr. Jens Eldrup-Jorgensen. He conceived of the initiative (see accompanying story) and brought it to the SVS Foundation. He is the medical director for the SVS Patient Safety Organization Vascular Quality Initiative and chairs the VISTA Program Steering Committee. SVS member Kelly Kempe, MD, is overseeing the first VISTA pilot project, “Disparities in Access to Care for Limb Salvage: The Oklahoma Project,” working with the state’s indigenous and rural populations. It builds on current outreach efforts in the state, some of which began as part of Dr. Kempe’s 2020 SVS Foundation Community Awareness and Prevention (CAPP) Grant. Abbot is providing funding for the Oklahoma limb salvage project. Boston Scientific is funding two other pilot projects (see accompanying story).

highest rates of cardiovascular risk factors associated with amputation in the country. The survey also asked PCPs if they were interested in one-on-one conversations to further elucidate the same questions. “We’re identifying the beginning point. What do PCPs see as primary barriers to specific care that leads to major amputation?” said Dr. Kempe. “Why do our patients end up with severe chronic disease and with limb loss?” Though the survey and qualitative data are currently being analyzed, PCPs told Dr. Kempe and her colleagues they would welcome educational resources and awareness. When VISTA came up, “It made sense to utilize the community outreach data we have and keep building in our state, collaborating with a handful of primary care practices.” First up is to get a sense of the obstacles PCPs face, said Dr. Kempe. VISTA volunteers will meet with the practices, distribute educational materials, discuss prevention that will include important physical exam signs, and provide tools such as portable doppler ultrasound equipment to check

VISTA Addressing Needs in Underserved Areas VISTA was born out of Dr. Jens Jorgensen’s desire to reach out and do more. He said he’s always been a bit envious of colleagues who have gone overseas to do medical missionary work, he said in an appearance on the Audible Bleeding podcast, a publication of the Society for Vascular Surgery. With the emphasis emerging over the past year on inequities within the United States and the needs in this country, he brought a concept to bring modern vascular care to underserved communities to the Society for Vascular Surgery Foundation. Refinements and revisions followed, with input from the American College of Surgeons, which has its own charitable programs, to create VISTA—Vascular Volunteers In Service To All. VISTA’s goal is awareness and prevention and its initial project grants support initiatives that emphasize patient education and awareness, as well as risk assessment, and focus on bringing vascular care to areas of need. VISTA organizers reached out to industry and corporate partners. “We were able to bring the VISTA idea to industry and say, ‘We have a project that addresses social disparities. Would you be interested in funding it?’ And actually, we got very quick turnaround on that. “Interestingly, talking to corporations, we found out that their new employees want to know what the companies are doing to address social disparities,” said Dr. Jorgensen. “The folks who are joining these companies want to make sure that the company is also in line with their mission and goals in life. And so there's a really a very strong alignment between VISTA and our corporate partners,” said Dr. Jorgensen. “This is a really a very opportune time for us.” Abbot is funding Dr. Kelly Kempe’s project (see accompanying story); Boston Scientific is providing funding for two additional pilot projects. Joseph Mills of the Baylor College of Medicine is working on “A Patient-Centered Approach to Reduce Diabetes-Related Lower Extremity Amputations among Underrepresented Minorities” and Misty Humphries’ project is “Targeted Outreach in Vascular Deserts to Improve Outcomes for Chronic Limb Threatening Ischemia. Dr. Humphries is with the University of California at Davis.

For both CAPP and this new “disparities” project, Dr. Kempe is working with a multidisciplinary team at the University of Oklahoma. It includes Oklahoma Primary Healthcare Improvement Collaborative (OPHIC), Medical Informatics, Internal Medicine, Podiatry, Vascular Imaging and Dr. Peter Nelson, professor and chief of vascular surgery at University of Oklahoma College of Medicine in Tulsa. Via the CAPP grant, Dr. Kempe surveyed primary care providers (PCPs) throughout the state, asking them to identify barriers to limb salvage in Oklahoma, which has some of the

blood flow. This will help the PCPs become more confident assessing circulation issues and providing more assistance for patients they’re worried about, Dr. Kempe said. The VISTA volunteers want to work to both increase PCPs’ awareness about warning signs and the care vascular surgeons can provide and also to build important and supportive relationships. Then, physicians will know to reach out to vascular surgeons when necessary – and be comfortable doing so, said Dr. Kempe.. ■

Dr. Jorgensen knew of Drs. Peter Nelson and Kempe’s outreach work in Oklahoma, which has one of the highest rates of amputation in the country. Dr. Kempe began her outreach as part of her 2020 SVS Foundation Community Awareness and Prevention (CAPP) Grant. “The patients themselves don't know the seriousness of their situation and they show up very late in the process of their disease. Then we see them eventually in the emergency room, for example, and have very limited options in terms of treatment,” said Dr. Nelson. ■

Since its inception, the SVSF has committed $12 million to 34 vascular surgeon-scientists who have completed their K award funding, and seven who are currently being supported. The study authors analyzed the outcomes for the 41 recipients of the SVSF supplemental funding to determine the programmatic accomplishments, the return on investment, and areas for strategic improvement. Financial ROI for the SVSF-CDA was defined as federal research dollars divided by the total financial commitment by the SVSF-CDAs to the awardees. The study concluded that the SVSF-CDA Program is highly effective in developing vascular surgeon-scientists who contribute to the leadership and growth of academic

vascular surgery. Program recipients have secured $114 million in federal funding, a 9.5-fold financial ROI for the SVSF. The study did reveal areas for ongoing strategic improvement. The number of female vascular surgeon-scientists and award recipients has greatly increased in the last 10 years but the lack of racial and ethnic diversity is strikingly notable. A goal will be to enhance the diversity of our pipeline of future vascular surgeon-scientists. A second finding is that only 44% remain funded over time and emphasizes the essential need to retain these successful individuals in research in order to support the growth of the pipeline and continue to drive scientific discovery in vascular disease. ■ Read more about this study here: vascular.org/ResearchROI

Dr. Nicholai Henry was a third-year medical student when he received the Student Research Fellowship Award in 2017. During his time in medical school at Morehouse School of Medicine, Dr. Luke Brewster was his SVS Member Mentor. They discuss the impact of the award.

The SVS Foundation Student Research Fellowship is a prestigious award recognizing promising medical students and cutting-edge research under the direction of a vascular surgeon-scientist or clinical investigator. Some of our SVS' best and brightest mentors participate, and the competition for these awards is excellent. This award provides students with a stipend for their effort. In addition, the award introduces students to the vascular surgery group at their institution and vascular surgeons from around the country through research presentations and attendance at the Vascular Annual Meeting.

I was very privileged to have met Dr. Henry when he was in medical school. His interest in vascular and vascular science spurred us to put together our proposal and likely helped Dr. Henry match into a vascular residency. To my knowledge, Dr. Henry is the first Morehouse School of Medicine graduate to match into integrated vascular residency. Great job, Dr. Henry!

Clinical Research Seed Grant

IN PAYING BACK, JOE HART PAYS IT FORWARD For Joe Hart, a larger donation to the SVS Foundation this past year is helping him pay back several of his own scholarships and research opportunities from which he benefited. “I’m someone who’s been fortunate to get scholarships,” he said of his undergrad and medical school years. “I’m from a big family— I needed the help! So I try to pay things back where I can. I’ve always been involved, but I was able to do something more substantial this year.”

Joe Hart, MD

“I know it’s difficult to get funding, I know it’s important. Grants help our people get more funding to keep up their research, without clinical practice getting in the way.”

During medical school at Northwestern, he received funding for a research opportunity he feels helped him get started in the right direction. After fellowship he won an award in the Marco Polo Program to go to Europe for six months for training, research and project work. Now he tries to impact the future of vascular patient care by helping fund research that will affect that care. He calls himself a “hybrid,” working primarily in a clinical practice but also still trying to keep his hand in when it comes to research. He spent six years trying to make it his full-time pursuit. But funding was an issue as were the difficulties—as many researchers know—balancing research, clinical and patient needs.

Contributions to the SVS Foundation help researchers get that precious time they need to pursue projects to improve patient care, he said. “I know it’s difficult to get funding, I know it’s important. Grants help our people get more funding to keep up their research, without clinical practice getting in the way.” Dr. Hart also gives his time, serving on both the SVS Foundation Board of Directors and the VISTA—Vascular Volunteers In Service To All—Steering Committee. And after spending more than five years in a relatively rural setting in northern Maine, he also understands and appreciates some of the Foundation’s newer initiatives, such as VISTA—Vascular Volunteers Improving Service to All—aimed at providing access to vascular care to under-served populations. (see story on pages 2-3) He encourages everyone to participate in the Foundation’s work, echoing the sentiments of other Foundation committee members. “Even in my mac and cheese days I gave a little,” he said. “And I’m glad I’m in a place in my life where I can. It seems like the right thing to do.” ■

New donors (or those who had not contributed in the past five years or more) contributed $11,878 during the 2020 year-end Matching Gift Challenge, with the four members— Drs. William Shutze, Thomas Forbes, Peter Nelson, and Jens Eldrup-Jorgensen—providing an additional $10,000 in matching funds. Contributions went specifically to the Greatest Need Fund ($9,910 from 37 new donors, an additional $8,000 in matching funds and the Awareness and Prevention Fund for community health initiatives ($2,468, with $2,000 more in matching funds). Dr. Shutze kicked off the matching challenge, hoping to help early- and mid-career surgeons develop the “giving habit.”

He himself is a latecomer as a Foundation donor, becoming more involved when he saw that the Foundation and its projects—including patient education flyers and other community health initiatives—impact all SVS members. “In my early career I didn’t have a lot to give,” Dr. Shutze said. “I thought offering matching funds would be a way for earlyand mid-career surgeons who may not have a lot of philanthropic funds to be more impactful; if they give $100, they’re really giving $200.” Eldrup-Jorgensen reminded members that “many of our corporate sponsors measure our engagement by the percentage of members who contribute. So please contribute. Everything helps.” ■
