The Venous Disease Coalition (VDC) is a collaborative network of professional and public organizations united by one mission to increase public and health professional awareness of venous disease. The VDC is a public and interdisciplinary consortium dedicated to promoting public and health professional awareness of venous disease.
Vision: It is the vision of the VDC to create a society committed to the prevention, early detection, and prompt treatment of venous disease and its complications.
Mission: It is the mission of the VDC to promote efforts to improve the survival rates and quality of life for individuals with, or at risk for, venous disease.
The Coalition provides opportunities for members of the public, health care professionals, clinician investigators and basic researchers, professional health societies, government and health policy agencies, and other public and private organizations to work collaboratively to improve public health by providing educational programs regarding Venous Disease.
Venous diseases, which are a common cause of death and disability, are a spectrum of disorders which includes deep vein thrombosis (DVT), pulmonary embolism (PE), and chronic venous disease due to the post-thrombotic syndrome or primary valvular insufficiency. The educational programs of the Coalition will be designed to increase public and health professional awareness of the risks of venous disease.
The Venous Disease Coalition is coordinated by the Vascular Disease Foundation, a not-for-profit section 501(c)(3) organization.
