We are very excited to announce new investment in your future. Extensive research of the membership revealed that we need to focus energy and resources on innovative educational delivery models, public policy, and greater flexibility for collaborations with other wound care organizations.
You, the wound care clinician, are committed to improving people’s lives. You share a common interest to advance the care of people with and at risk for wounds. From individual member clinicians to industry partners, your combined vision, expertise, and passion deliver a powerful impact to your communities, regions, and states.
Your AAWC is focused and accepts the challenge to support and accelerate your collective practices for the good of you and your patients.
To further our mission, your AAWC must:
•    Evolve and adapt to the wound care industry’s clinical and professional needs.
•    Collaborate with key stakeholders to bind the wound care industry together
•    Advocate for your pressing topics and issues of today and tomorrow.

To be optimally positioned for a new future, your AAWC must make some important changes to its infrastructure. As a result, the AAWC will no longer be in partnership with HMP. Please join us in thanking them for their 23 years of partnership and the many accomplishments we have achieved together. We will be working with HMP through the end of the year to achieve a smooth transition and allocation of those resources toward a brighter future. We can’t wait to begin rolling out your new and improved AAWC!

Wound News You Can Use!
AAWC Launches a New Member E-Newsletter

On October 23, 2018 the AAWC will launch a new weekly publication generated by our newsletter partner, Rasa.io. The AAWC Wound News You Can Use is a personalized email that curates a combination of relevant wound industry stories and articles unique to the individual interests of our members. The Rasa.io’s artificial intelligence technology learns each member’s likes and interests to personalize their email news content based upon those preferences. The result is a concise but robust source of recent research, product developments, and wound care information and resources.

We are very excited about this new member offering and want to make it as useful as possible for readers. Look for the first issue to launch on Tuesday October 23. Take a moment to read it and then click on the feedback link to let us know what you think!
