"I am honored to be selected as the newest member of the Board of Directors for the ACP Foundation," said Dr. Gibbs, Chief Medical Executive of American Vein & Vascular Institute. "To be involved at a Foundation level alongside some of the best and brightest minds in medicine offers a significant opportunity for me - not only to learn and expand my experience but also to make a tangible difference in this medical field. I am a true believer in the Foundation's purpose to further the field of phlebology through education, research and other growth initiatives."
Dr. Gibbs and his wife, Erin Gibbs, founded American Vein & Vascular Institute in January 2010 in Pueblo, Colo., and have since opened seven clinics across Colorado and Texas, with more than 50 employees.
