Another great SAWC event in the books! The eKare team participated in SAWC Virtual 2021 by presenting during the conference and serving as a sponsor for the Wound Healing Foundation merit awards.
eKare’s very own Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Kyle Wu, served as a SAWC faculty member and hosted a session titled “Every Picture Tells a Story: Wound Photography & Imaging” with Oscar Alvarez as the moderator. Dr. Wu provided his expert opinion on the latest advances in mobile wound imaging, the role artificial intelligence is playing in wound care, and important considerations for data and decision support as the adoption of digital health increases. Couldn’t make the talk? Dr. Wu sat down ahead of his SAWC talk to discuss these important topics! Check out the Q&A
Wound Healing Foundation Awards
Each year during the SAWC conference, the Wound Healing Foundation (WHF) recognizes deserving scientists and clinicians in the field of wound healing. eKare was pleased to partner with WHF for the third year in a row as a sponsor. Dr. Wu participated in the virtual awards ceremony held for the scholarship recipients during which he made the following statement, “If we have learned anything in the past year, it’s that the landscape in the healthcare industry is continuously changing, and with change comes innovation. The eKare team is committed to supporting our young scientists to be at the forefront of that innovation. Your dedication and contributions to the wound care industry will continue to pave the way for important advancements that achieve the common goal of improving patient outcomes.
