Wound Healing Society
The Wound Healing Society (WHS) was established in 1989 and has since become known nationally and internationally as the premier scientific organization focused on wound healing research and education. The WHS is a nonprofit organization composed of basic researchers, clinical scientists, and wound care specialists; its mission is to improve wound healing outcomes through science, professional education, and communication. The WHS promotes interactions among scientists, clinicians, wound care practitioners, industry representatives, and government agencies. The WHS is open to individuals who have a broad interest in advancing the field of wound healing, and it presently has close to 600 active members in the United States and other countries. The society’s journals, Wound Repair and Regeneration and Advances in Wound Care are the leading journals in their discipline. The WHS Annual Meeting is held jointly with the Symposium on Advanced Wound Care Spring to share the latest in wound healing research, discuss innovative technologies, develop new initiatives, network with colleagues, establish new collaborations, reconnect with old friends, and hopefully make new ones.
