“This event was so exciting as a wound care nurse with 20 years in home care, and now working in acute care again. I love treating the WHOLE patient.”

Attendee Testimonials

“I have been a PT for 17 years and a wound care clinician for about 15 of that. This is one of the best conferences I have attended. This was the most relaxed and engaged I have been at a course probably ever. Thank you for doing this and I sincerely hope that we all get to do it again. Thanks to everyone who helped put this on.”
