Healogics® Eighth Annual Wound Care Awareness Week Focuses on the Growing Need for Wound Care
Healogics Wound Care Awareness Week is June 7 – 11
JACKSONVILLE, Fla., June 2, 2021 — Healogics, the nation’s leading provider of
world-class wound care services, is proud to sponsor the eighth annual Wound Care Awareness Week from June 7 – 11, 2021. The Healogics Wound Care Awareness Campaign is part of the year-long 2021 The Year of Healing program, dedicated to empowering both patients and healthcare providers with resources to help improve health, heal wounds and prevent amputations.
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.
