We're pleased to let you know that CVAA is participating in an online knowledge sharing network called Sosido ( Sosido was created for and by healthcare associations, to speed knowledge transfer, promote collaboration, highlight the important work and research by members, and bridge silos by publicizing the contributions of each specialty group to the broader healthcare community.

  • - A weekly email digest summarizing all activity in the CVAA community. You don’t have to log in to participate, and anything that’s important will come to your inbox, including:

  • - Updates on all publications authored by CVAA members that week. Sosido automatically delivers a current and complete snapshot of the work of our CVAA community.

  • - A summary of new articles released that week from journals chosen by you.

  • - Access to a secure CVAA members-only forum to ask and answer questions.
