VSA is pleased to announce a new partnership with the American Diabetes Association to raise research funds for the prevention and cure of this challenging disease.
This partnership is especially meaningful for us due to the profound link between diabetes and vascular disease.
The majority of adults with diabetes die from vascular disease. In fact, diabetics are 2-4 times more likely to die from vascular disease than adults without it.
Most common complications include kidney failure, stroke, peripheral vascular disease, and loss of limb (amputation).
Through this partnership, we will have office events to provide staff and patient education about the role of diet in diabetes prevention and management, as well as to participate in the Tour de Cure and other fundraising activities.
Please consider joining us in support of the diabetes association!
The simplest way to help is to donate on-line:
- Go to diabetes.org/rvatour
- Choose the Donate button under the Tour de Cure Central Virginia
- Search for a team – Vascular Surgery Associates
- Follow through in completing your donation
If you are interested, we are also selling VSA logo hats and diabetes awareness pins to assist with this important cause.Back to News
