Diabetic Limb Salvage conference joins 2023 Symposium on Advanced Wound Care (SAWC) Spring | Wound Healing Society for immersive educational experience

Premier annual limb salvage meeting co-locates with the leading meeting dedicated to the research, management, treatment, and prevention of wounds in April.

MALVERN, Pa., Aug. 17, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Three industry-leading wound care organizations are uniting for a conference in April 2023, focusing on wound prevention and management, research, and limb salvage. The meeting will offer the most cost-effective, comprehensive, and immersive educational event for professionals in the wound care space.

The Symposium on Advanced Wound Care (SAWC) Spring | Wound Healing Society (WHS) is the leading meeting dedicated to the research, management, treatment, and prevention of wounds; and Diabetic Limb Salvage (DLS) is the premier annual limb salvage education event focused on wound healing and preventing amputations. The 2023 event is organized by HMP Global, the omnichannel leader in healthcare events and education, and will be held April 26-30, 2023, in National Harbor, Maryland.

The in-person event will provide opportunities for networking and collaboration, with an educational agenda featuring an expert lineup of faculty, in-depth discussions, and exposure to innovation, proven techniques, and effective strategies for patient care. The interdisciplinary agenda is designed for every clinician interested in wound care, including physicians, nursing professionals, physical therapists, researchers, scientists, podiatrists, and dietitians ? connecting the entire wound care team with the foremost experts in the field to improve patient outcomes through education.

DLS Co-Chairs are Dr. Christopher E. Attinger, Chief, Division of Wound Healing at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital and professor of plastic and orthopaedic surgery, Georgetown University School of Medicine in Washington, D.C.; and Dr. John S. Steinberg, Co-Director, MedStar Health Wound Healing Institute at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, Hospital Center Director of the Podiatric Residency Training Program, MedStar Health, and a professor of plastic surgery at Georgetown University School of Medicine.

"Through this collaboration, educational opportunities at the conference will focus on every aspect of wound research, prevention, and healing along with a focus on limb salvage," said Dr. Steinberg. "We are solving the issue of access to education by uniting these three events this year to provide learners with one comprehensive event. It is an opportunity for providers to strengthen their clinical skills, invigorate their approach, and positively impact their ability to care for their patients."

The collaboration with DLS will add more limb salvage-focused topics to the conference agenda, including:

The WHS President is Dr. Kenneth Liechty, Division Chief of Pediatric Surgery and Director of Fetal Medicine, University of Arizona, and Surgeon in Chief of Diamond Children's Hospital; and Co-Chairs are Dr. Daria Narmoneva, associate professor, University of Cincinnati, and Dr. Carlos Zgheib, assistant professor of surgery, University of Colorado Denver School of Medicine in Aurora.

"Although each of these three organizations have a unique mission, we are united in our goals of improving outcomes for patients and patient populations," Dr. Liechty said. "We are excited to host one symposium for every member of the wound care team, allowing us to provide the highest caliber training and education that all clinicians can incorporate in their practice."

SAWC Spring Co-Chairs are Dr. Robert S. Kirsner, Harvey Blank Professor and chairman, Dr. Philip Frost Department of Dermatology and Cutaneous Surgery, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine; and Dot Weir, RN, CWON, CWS, clinician at Saratoga Hospital Wound Healing.

"We have partnered with the Wound Healing Society for 15 years, providing a robust educational experience for meeting participants, and this year's event will be even stronger with the addition of multiple topics on amputation prevention," Dr. Kirsner said. "No other wound care conference offers the level of education, advanced state-of-the-art clinical reviews, and emerging research findings."
