An intimate, interactive 3-Day Conference on Wound Healing Innovation

WoundHSI uniquely convenes wound care leaders across the multi-disciplinary spectrum of academic, industry, policy, and clinical stakeholders in a setting and scale conducive to impactful discussions and long-term collaborations.
    In its 18th year, WoundHSI is designed to give participants the opportunity to network, engage in hands-on problem solving, and learn about cutting-edge technologies and clinical approaches.
      Participants are updated on the latest advances in wound healing and amputation prevention, and benefit from engaging in sessions without any intellectual restrictions. Sessions consist of presentations and interactive discussions relating to the:
        - scientific understanding of wound healing
          - development and commercialization of solutions to improve outcomes
            - utility of products and services in clinical care
              This event is presented by the Peter Sheehan Diabetes Care Foundation, Inc. (PSDCF), a 501 (c)(3) Non-Profit Tax-Exempt Charitable Organization.

                    The Peter Sheehan Young Innovator Award has been created in the spirit of Dr. Peter Sheehan’s vision to transform the ways in which we develop scientific innovation for all those suffering with diabetes and the associated complications and diseases.
                    Through the wedding together of basic and clinical innovations, and by bringing the global diabetes and wound care communities together annually at the WoundHSI Conference, the Peter Sheehan Diabetes Care Foundation (PSDCF) and the WoundHSI Conference have and will continue to offer innovators, experimentalists, industry and clinical experts the opportunities for advancing the mission while sustaining the PSDCF vision.
                    The 2020 Peter Sheehan Young Innovator Award Competition will take place and be held in conjunction with the 18th Annual WoundHSI Conference, 18-19 June 2020, Apella at the Alexandria Center for Life Science in New York City.
