Wound Healing Awareness Month

June is Wound Healing Awareness Month

The ABWM Foundation has named June as Wound Healing Awareness Month (WHAM!).  This month is meant to recognize the challenges experienced by individuals whose lives are affected daily by chronic wounds and to bring awareness to the general public of the support given by certified wound specialists. 

In addition to Wound Healing Awareness Month, the ABWM Foundation designated June 19 – June 23, 2017 as Certified Wound Care Specialists Week.  This week celebrates all practitioners certified by the American Board of Wound Management which includes Certified Wound Care Associates®, Certified Wound Specialists®, and Certified Wound Specialist Physicians®.
