Where do you see the industry in the next 10 years?
I think the demand for venous care will increase in developed countries as the population ages. I also see an increase in developing regions where patients are underserved with access to venous care. The potential to help patients in worldwide is exciting.

Why are you excited about participating in UIP2018?
The fellowship of the UIP is wonderful; there are many relationships I have with UIP members that I value and others that I would like to nurture. i look forward to learning about vein disease from many different perspectives and to be able to share my thoughts on this exciting field of medicine.
