"AAWC is grateful to have such high quality corporate representation on the AAWC Corporate Advisory Panel," said Dr. Snyder. "Their support of the association and our mission allows AAWC to build a collaborative wound care community for optimal care of those who suffer with hard to heal or non-healing wounds."

AAWC reciprocates our dedication to the wound care industry with free seminars for industry representatives. In addition, AAWC offers a variety of membership benefits to its sponsors, including several marketing opportunities throughout the year.  Examples include free advertising space, acknowledgements at large conferences where AAWC is present (such as the SAWC Spring and Fall), a voice within the CAP, and recognition in its social media, newsletters and major wound care journals, which are read by tens of thousands of clinicians monthly.
