Hello, I am Dr. Frederick Beavers, and this is a Society for Vascular Surgery briefing about the topic of diversity in vascular surgery. This is an exciting time to be a vascular surgeon, and even more so to be an American. The demographic shifts that have taken place in America within the last twenty years have exacerbated the difference in the number of minority physicians vs. the percentage of minority Americans. The population projections to the year 2050 will only widen the gap. This can be seen as a problem or, a prime opportunity to address some of the healthcare disparities that are so well documented.
