Wound Care Awareness Week Focuses on the Growing Need for Wound Care
We are proud to sponsor the eighth annual Wound Care Awareness Week from June 7 – 11, 2021. We will focus on Wound Care Awareness throughout the month of June. You can find free educational resources and facts about the growing need for wound care at woundcareawareness.com.
Nearly 7 million people in the United States are living with a non-healing wound. The prevalence of chronic wounds is growing in tandem with an aging population and increasing rates of diseases, such as diabetes and heart disease. In support of the Healogics mission to advance wound healing by creating and sharing wound expertise, several educational resources have been created for both patients and healthcare providers.

This year’s Healogics Wound Care Awareness Campaign has additional significance in light of the increase of amputation rates globally due to the impact of COVID-19. Healogics team members across the country will reach out to their communities to share information about chronic wounds, tips for prevention and options for advanced wound care.
