2020 Annual Meeting Cancelled
As you may have heard, SAWC has postponed the May meeting and relocated the spring symposium to now be held July 22-25, 2020 in Charlotte, NC. For several reasons, including the uncertainty of the impact of COVID-19 on our members, their patients and practices in the coming months, the Wound Healing Society will NOT be participating in the upcoming meeting. This decision was not made lightly and followed significant thoughtful discussion by the Executive Committee, with input from the 2020 Program Chairs. This decision was unanimously ratified by the WHS Board of Directors.
SAWC will continue to honor the reduced member registration rates for any WHS members who may wish to attend their July program, and we thank them for their understanding and support of the WHS decision.
WHS will be proceeding with a series of virtual abstract sessions, more information and details will follow in the coming weeks. We will also be posting the program online to recognize and display the hard work put in by the Program Committee (since the meeting will not be occurring). Again, please keep an eye out for more information soon.
We thank you for your support during these uncertain times, and appreciate your dedication to the WHS.
The SAWC Spring meeting has been rescheduled for July 22-26, 2020. WHS members are still able to receive a 20% savings on their registration. You will need your member ID to register.
Submissions must be received by April 13, 2020.
The Wound Healing Society (WHS) will continue the Wound Shark product innovation competition this year. The Competition will be done virtually so please continue to send in your applications by the deadline. More to follow...
