Dr. Cindy Asbjornsen, leading Maine vein specialist and founder of the Vein Healthcare Center in South Portland, was selected to be an oral abstract judge for the Union Internationale de Phlébologie XVII World Meeting this September.
The Union Internationale de Phlébologie (UIP), or the International Union of Phlebology, will be hosted in Boston by the American College of Phlebology (ACP). It is the first time ever that this prestigious conference will be held in the United States.
The UIP is one of the oldest and most respected phlebology associations in the world. The World Congress brings together the most respected physicians and health care professionals from across the globe to share the most advanced research, technology and treatments in the field of vein care.
“It is an honor to participate in this UIP World Meeting because it’s the first one to be held in the U.S.— and I’m especially excited because we will meet on the East Coast,” said Dr. Asbjornsen. “I know that the American College of Phlebology will do a outstanding job hosting the international community of provider.”
Dr. Asbjornsen won first place recognition for her presentation at the ACP’s 2010 Congress, and in 2011 was invited to be part of the ACP Congress faculty. Dr. Asbjornsen is currently the only vein specialist in Maine to be named a Fellow by the American College of Phlebology. She is the founder of the Vein Healthcare Center, as well as the Maine Phlebology Association. Certified by the American Board of Phlebology, she cares for all levels of venous disease, including spider veins, varicose veins and venous ulcers. She is also the editorial director of Vein Health News, Maine’s vein magazine for primary care physicians.
