WoundZoom at SAWC Spring in San Antonio

WoundZoom exhibited at another great Symposium of Advanced Wound Care (SAWC) spring in San Antonio. SAWC is always a great conference where you're surrounded by progress and innovation. Attending exhibitors bring the latest and greatest when it comes wound care solutions. Sessions are packed with the education to promote the best possible patient care. Posters ranging from case studies to health economics help to advance the conversation about the future of wound care. It's an event you don't want to miss. We're already looking forward to next spring in San Diego, but wanted to recap our top three take-aways from San Antonio.

  1. Engaged Audience. Attendees at SAWC always bring the best questions and comments and every year they help to shape us into a better wound care company.

  2. Collaborative Neighbors. No matter our booth location, we're lucky to always meet others that help to educate us in a new area of wound care.

  3. Brisket. Texas knows how to cook a piece of meat.

Reach out to us if you weren't able to stop by and say hello in San Antonio! We'd love to hear your top three take-aways from SAWC.
