Is Your Practice Rooted in Results?

Don't miss the opportunity to present your research study, case study or practice innovation to some of the most notable healthcare providers in the industry.

Submit an abstract for the chance to show how your practice is rooted in results.

Sharing your results can help others improve patient outcomes across the continuum of care.
Win a Travel Scholarship Award to Salt Lake City!

Last year, 15 first-time poster presenters were awarded a travel scholarship.
This year, it could be you!

Sage Products will provide the Society with an unrestricted educational grant to offer travel scholarships to first-time abstract poster presenters with a focus on Preventative Practices for Wounds.
  • If your abstract submission meets this criteria, be sure to check off the first-time presenter button and choose "Preventative Practices" under the Wound category.
     
  • The scholarship can be used to offset conference expenses including registration, airfare, hotel and meals.
