•  What’s new in the wound world?
•  Regulatory update
•  Types of wounds in PA/LTC

My co-presenter is Dr. Scott Bolhack who will give Part 2, presenting case examples from his extensive files.  Dr. Bolhack is Clinical Assistant Professor at the Department of Medicine, University of Arizona and President and CEO.  There will be fifteen minutes at the end reserved for audience questions.
