More than 2,000 physicians, podiatrists, nurses, therapists, and researchers attended the 2017 SAWC/WHS meeting, enabling the networking with several people in the field.
Dr. Mariana Cerqueira was awarded a Trainee Travel Award and presented a work focused on the crosstalk between human adipose stem cells and keratinocytes.
