SAWC CHAIRPERSONS’ WELCOME
Welcome to the biggest and best wound care conference in the country. In our 26th year, the Symposium for Advanced Wound Care (SAWC) provides a unique venue for our interdisciplinary wound care community to gather, greet, learn, and play. The SAWC motto — One Vision, Many Faces, One Family — continues to guide us. We are all connected by our involvement with our patients, our healthcare settings, our desire to acquire new knowledge, the government agencies that regulate our care, and the various overarching organizations. Together, we work toward a common goal: to decrease the number and severity of wounds of all types. With this in mind, we expect the SAWC to meet your educational and professional needs. Thank you for helping build the Wound Healing Community.
