The bi-annual Symposium on Advanced Wound Care (SAWC) Spring and Fall meetings are the largest gathering of wound care clinicians in the world. Over the past 36 years HMP Global, the owner/manager of SAWC, has trusted a select group of wound clinician volunteers to serve as Faculty Presenters, Host Committee Members, Publication Peer Reviewers, and Difference Makers. In our ongoing efforts to involve our wound care community and bring emerging voices to the forefront of our meeting, we are seeking volunteers with a passion for wound care, helping others, and becoming a part of our SAWC family.
