The WUWHS 2016 Congress Ambassadors Testimonial  

The WUWHs helps unify the language and practice of wound care across borders and disciplines for the common cause of improving clinical outcomes and strengthenng wound care evidence. At WUWHS, we all learn from each other how to do what works for patents with all kinds of wounds in all settings around the world and return home with renewed enthusiasm and knowledge to propel wound care into a brighter, more effective future

Prof. Laura Bolton - Adjunct Associate Professor of Surgery, Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson University Medical School, New Brunswick, New Jersey

Although those investigating and studying wounds and wound healing work in many different medical and surgical disciplines, because of efforts over the past four decades by wound healing societies throughout the world, the people and the body of information assembled by them have begun to coalesce into a strong centralized force for progress in wound healing research and for recognition of wound healing work. The World Union of Wound Healing Societies (WUWHS) has played an important role in this process. By way of its efforts, especially its congresses, the WUWHS has encouraged a broad-based communication between organizations and people in different countries and regions as well as disciplines. The WUWHS has been an important catalytic agent in the formation of a wound healing culture and in allowing recognition of the individuals and organizations which have been and continue to be key to that process. the WUWHS's efforts are important in advancing knowledge and helping patients in our area.

Prof. William Eaglstein - Chairman Emeritus, Department of Dermatology, University of Miami, FL

I am honored and happy to serve as Ambassador of the WUWHS 2016 Congress in a moment of exciting development of the wound healing field in both research and clinical applications. I am sure that the Meeting will be instrumental in allowing an important progress in both fields and in  implementing international cooperaiton

Prof. Giulio Gabbiani - Emeritus Professor Dept. of Pathology and Immunology, Medical Faculty, CMU, University of Geneva, Swiss 

Networking on a global basis between researchers and clinicians is of greatest importance to understand and improve wound healing and wound related problems. WUWHS has an important role in providing the most recent research and its clinical applications from groups all over the world. In the end this will benefit both the patients and  the health care economies. This is why I personally recommend people from different health care professions to visit and be inspired by the next conference in Firenze, one of the most beautiful cities in the world

Prof. Christina Lindholm - PhD senior professor på Sophiahemmet University/Karolinska University Hospital,  Stockholm, Sweden

Wounds result from different pathologies and require multidisciplinary management. The World Union of Wound Healing Societies provides a unique platform for exchanging experiences and ideas between scientists, clinicians, wound healing experts and health care providers from the whole world. Due to the  rapid progression of specialization in every specific area the  transfer of  knowledge is of increasing importance and WUWHS will play an ongoing  major role regarding this important task in order to optimize the care of our patients also in the future

 Prof. Dr. Hugo Partsch - Emeritus Professor of Dermatology, Medical University of Vienna, Austria

The WUWHS and its promotion of new wound healing treatment benefits one and all, from surgeons and nurses to the family caregiver. It is undeniably the driving force behind shedding rays of hope on areas that have not yet seen the light in wound healing

 Prof. Takehiko Ohura - Professor Emeritus of Hokkaido University (Plastic Surgery) - Chair of Pressure Ulcer & Wound Healing Research Center (Kojin-kaiI, Japan)

Wound healing studies have contributed to knowledge of Health and Disease. Skin care is one consequence, applicable to Dermatology's vaste catelogue of named disorders as well as to Burns ,Lymphoedema and Neglected Tropical Diseases. I look forward to this important milestone, celebrating and taking forward this important discipline
