Symposium On Advanced Wound Care (SAWC) Disclaimer

Symposium on Advanced Wound Care (SAWC), its contractors, and attending news media may be photographing or videotaping scientific sessions and events at the conference. By attending SAWC, attendees acknowledge these activities and agree to allow their image to be used by SAWC in association publications, on the SAWC website, and in marketing and promotional materials. Attendees at SAWC waive all claims against SAWC for any liability resulting from these uses.

Health and Safety

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the focus at HMP Global has been the health and safety of our customers, staff, and communities. Vaccinations have reduced many of the COVID-19 guidelines/mandates regarding face masks, social distancing, and travel. In many states and cities, guidelines/mandates have been completely eliminated. 

As HMP Global moves forward with producing live meetings and conferences, we will continue to monitor the continually evolving guidance released by the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as all federal, state, and local government mandates, to provide an environment that is as safe as possible for all event participants. 

By participating in person, I agree to follow the meeting’s health and safety policies as mandated by the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the federal, state, and local government.
