Journal Club: Advances in Wound Healing 

Using contemporary peer reviewed literature, the AAWC Journal Club imparts key learnings on selected subject matter most relevant to our members working in the wound care space. This educational series provides a great opportunity to form a study group and participate in the session with your colleagues. Speakers include expert AAWC members and leaders.

Journal Club is held the second Wednesday of each month from 1:00 – 2:00 PM Eastern. Throughout the session participants have the opportunity to share comments on the research and ask questions of the presenter.

At the beginning of each month an email is sent to members inviting them to R.S.V.P. for the next webinar.
