It is with much excitement that we share that the Southern Association for Vascular Surgery announced Dr. Hunter Ray, our vascular surgery resident (integrated residency program), as the winner of this year’s S. Timothy String Award!  The selection committee informed the society of their decision earlier this week.

This prestigious SAVS’s accolade is awarded each year to the best presentation from the Annual Meeting. Dr. Ray presented his original research project at the 2016 Annual SAVS Meeting on the “Predictors of Intervention and Mortality in Patients with Uncomplicated Acute Type B Aortic Dissection”, under the guidance and mentorship of Dr. Ali Azizzadeh, Professor and Chief of Vascular Surgery, at the department of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery.

Dr. Ray will be honored at the 2017 Annual Meeting Awards Ceremony to be held in Naples, Fl.

Congratulations, Drs. Ray and Azizzadeh!!!
