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.

Admire ocean and tropical garden views from Caribe Hilton hotel, one of the most famous and iconic hotels in Puerto Rico.

With no passport required for US citizens, visiting Caribe Hilton is an easy Caribbean getaway.

The geography of Puerto Rico is unusual, as it encompasses distinctly different kinds of topography and microclimates in a relatively small area. Puerto Rico is only about 100 miles long and 35 miles wide, so its most distant points are only a three-hour drive apart.
