The American Board of Venous & Lymphatic Medicine (ABVLM), formerly the American Board of Phlebology, was established in 2007 to improve the standards of medical practitioners and the quality of patient care related to the treatment of vein diseases and lymphatic disorders. It also serves as a central source for patients to easily locate certified vein specialists. Since its inception, ABVLM has certified hundreds of Diplomates, and the Board looks forward to congratulating more certified vein specialists in the future. The establishment of a Certification Exam in venous and lymphatic medicine brings additional recognition to both the field and those providers in the field who have the knowledge, skills, and experience to provide high quality of care to patients with varicose veins and other venous and lymphatic disorders.
Effective September 1, 2011, the board of directors of ABVLM selected L&M to be its management firm, along with Christopher Freed, CAE, as its executive director.
“As an independent medical certification Board led by volunteer physicians, we needed support from a management team that could provide organizational advice and a reliable infrastructure to keep our governing board, committees, and programs running smoothly. L&M has the experience and leadership skills that make it easy for us run a highly respected organization and to achieve our goals and aspirations. Their involvement is a large part of our success. I would strongly recommend L&M for an association’s professional management needs.”

It’s been a very productive relationship.”
