Silver Celebration Starts in September

Get ready to pack your bags for Nashville, Tennessee, to take part in the exciting 25th Annual Clinical Symposium on Advances in Skin & Wound Care, September 30 to October 3, 2010. This silver anniversary celebration of wound care education and professional networking will be held at Gaylord Opryland Hotel & Convention Center. More than 1000 multidisciplinary practitioners are expected at this year's conference, including nurses, physicians, podiatrists, physical therapists, dietitians, and others who manage skin and wound care patients across the continuum of healthcare.

The conference will meet the continuing-education needs of multidisciplinary skin and wound care practitioners, from novice to expert, by providing a forum for educational sessions and interactive workshops that offer comprehensive wound management strategies. In addition to the wide array of lecture sessions and workshops, poster presentations are included in the educational offerings. Clinicians are encouraged to share their research findings and wound management tips, tricks, techniques, and expertise as a poster presenter. Display details of your clinical innovations, and give colleagues information they can take home and apply in their work settings.

When it's time to close this year's annual symposium, Dr Keith Harding from Wales, United Kingdom, is sure to make the final 2010 presentation a memorable one. His dynamic closing session, "The 25-Year Journey of Healing Wounds," will embrace the history of wounds and take us on a voyage of healing wounds over the past quarter of a century. Dr Harding will focus on where we've come from, what we've accomplished, where we're going, and what the future holds for those practicing in wound care. We are certain that this closing session is worth the wait!

See you in Nashville!
