The Heal Ohio Conference

Join us April 2, 2020 in Columbus

The 2020 Heal Ohio Conference will be devoted to health professional presentations and feature informative learning sessions and keynote addresses. Activities are expected to provide an atmosphere rich in collaboration and networking for both career and research advancement.

The Heal Ohio Collaborative is a voluntary multi-disciplinary and multi-institutional collaborative dedicated to research, education, and commercialization activity focused on all aspects of wound healing and prevention to enhance patient care through formulation and testing of new diagnostic, drug, and therapeutic means and to increase outreach and educational opportunities in the Ohio community at large. It is a statewide collaborative that aims to unite scientists, healthcare professionals, and commercial partners who share a common vision and mission to solve problems associated with wound healing. In doing this, it will serve to bridge the gaps that exist between clinics, research, business, and patients.

The Heal Ohio Conference has been able to impact the wound care industry for more than a decade due to generous sponsorship over the years. Interested in getting more involved in Heal Ohio? Click here to apply to join the committee.
