The VBF iTEAM brings humanitarian medical mission trips to the international vascular birthmarks community.

Through the VBF iTEAM, vascular birthmarks expert physicians from the USA and around the world are brought to other countries to educate groups of international physicians on the accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment of vascular birthmarks. During these invaluable medical mission trips, physicians can earn continuing medical education credit and learn about the latest in research and treatment methods. Patients may also attend to patriciate in conference lectures, seek laser treatment, and attend clinical appointments with teams of expert physicians.

VBF iTEAM medical mission trips have been held in countries across the world including Greece, India, Italy, Russia, and Israel. The iTEAM has plans to visit China in 2020.

A special thanks to our VBF iTEAM Medical Directors Dr. Robert Rosen and Dr. Stavros Tombris. and the many others who make these medical missions possible. We won’t stop until every child and adult with a vascular birthmark has an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.
