  The Symposium on Advanced Wound Care Spring   |   Wound Healing Society (SAWC   |   WHS) meeting features exciting new cutting-edge topics led by the most dynamic and influential educators in wound healing.  Be part of the movement and join your global community of difference makers at SAWC who are committed to providing better care and better outcomes.

SAWC takes place twice each year,   Spring and Fall.  The ACEWM Wound Management Special Interest Group (WMSIG) has a partnership with HMP Communications which allows the ACEWM to have a booth in the exhibit hall at the Spring conference and an exhibit table at the Fall conference.   ACEWM members also get a 15% discount on registration fees using a special code   at the time of registration.  If you are ready to register, and the code has not yet been announced through the WMSIG listserv, please reach out to the WMSIG leadership to receive your code.


SAWC is seeking the nomination of a PT member of the ACEWM section  to attend the upcoming SAWC Symposium this Spring!  The  Symposium will be located in Grapevine, Texas on May  12-16th , 2021.  We hope to nominate an individual who has demonstrated exceptional clinical skills and an intense dedication to managing patients with wounds,  especially during this pandemic.  The scholarship is open to any Physical Therapist currently practicing wound management.  Although the future  is uncertain, we encourage all to apply and invite you to submit an application.    

Due to the  COVID pandemic, the SAWC    Spring conference may be held virtually.
