Influential leaders in the field of wound healing present an intimate, interactive three-day program of innovation and ideas exchange

The mission of the annual Wound Healing: Science and Industry Conference (WoundHSI) is to update practicing, research, and industry scientists on the timeliest advances in wound healing. Procedural and pharmaceutical novel treatments are increasingly being utilized for acute and chronic disease in inpatient and outpatient practices, whereas patients require long-term wound care. WoundHSI’s goal is to offer a compendium of information that will better enable the provider to practice clinical medicine.

The three-day multidisciplinary conference is specifically designed to be an intense and interactive learning experience. Distinguished clinicians and scientists deliver plenary lectures on the most recent advances in the field. At its conclusion, participants will have much more knowledge on the role of new therapeutics and devices.

This event is presented by the Peter Sheehan Diabetes Care Foundation, Inc. (PSDCF), a 501 (c)(3) Non-Profit Tax-Exempt Charitable Organization.
