Opening Keynote Presentation

Award-winning motivational speaker Sam Glenn will be this year's opening keynote.

Sam's talk "Roots of Success" will focus on the roots that makes success possible:
  • Connecting to what inspires us and what enables us to grow. This can be education, learning new ways of doing things, learning from others and bringing value to what we do and who we are.
     
  • Working with others. Everybody plays a role in the success of a tree. It is important to recognize, respect and acknowledge what others do in a positive way. We achieve more when we work together.
     
  • Developing a greater resilience through the seasons. Life is filled with changes, challenges and the unexpected. Having a positive attitude does not stop the seasons from coming but equips us to withstand the test of time and allows us to find solutions to move forward.

Message From A Society Supporter

Cutting-edge. Unique. Revolutionary.
Smith and Nephew is dedicated to bringing innovation to Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) products to improve patient experiences and clinical outcome.

PICO is changing the rules of NPWT with one system indicated for use on acute wounds, chronic wounds and surgical incisions. Our technology uniquely manages exudate by locking away and evaporating thus making it canister free! We're expanding the NPWT benefits beyond the wound site by providing compression to the periwound, which may help reduce edema and improve perfusion.

Visit booth 611 to get your hands on the future of NPWT today with PICO!
