Dr. George Andros, departing Medical Editor of Vascular Specialist, was presented with a Presidential Citation Award by Dr. Peter Gloviczki in recognition of his exemplary service to the Society for Vascular Surgery for outstanding editorial leadership of Vascular Specialist. He received the award during the SVS Business Meeting May 31 at the Vascular Annual Meeting.
Dr. Andros succeeded Dr. K. Wayne Johnston as only the second medical editor of Vascular Specialist. Under his esteemed leadership over the past years, Vascular Specialist has widened its coverage of vascular surgery and entered the online world with online-only editions, e-newsletters, and a website.
He installed a stellar board of editorial advisors from across the United States and the world and inspired them to provide the insightful commentaries that have so enhanced our pages.
As managing editor, I would personally like to thank Dr. Andros for his commitment, professionalism, and friendship throughout this time.
Dr. Andros will be succeeded by Dr. Russell Samson, who will begin his medical editor duties with the August print edition of Vascular Specialist.
Managing Editor, Vascular Specialist
