Homans Lecture: Delivered at the SVS June 2016 Annual Meeting

"I realize that predicting the future is risky and that my predictions can be wrong. Also – as Yogi Berra said, “The future ain’t what it used to be” - and this applies particularly to Vascular Surgery because the health care system and Vascular Surgery’s position in it has become so different from what it was.

However, this topic gave me an opportunity to express what is right and bright about American Vascular Surgery, and also the challenges it faces. It also allows me to advise Vascular Surgery and its future leaders what they might consider doing to help meet these challenges."
