ConvaTec (Skillman, NJ) donated $10,000 to the Association for the Advancement of Wound Care (AAWC) Global Volunteers program through the SAWC Walk for Wellness that took place at the 25th Annual Symposium on Advanced Wound Care and Wound Healing Society (SAWC/WHS) in Atlanta, Georgia from April 19 to April 22, 2012.
The Walk for Wellness helped raise awareness of the AAWC Global Volunteers program and the need for ongoing education and training programs to promote access to proper wound treatment for the underserved in developing countries and North America.
Conference participants were provided with pedometers that counted each step they took during the conference. They were encouraged to engage in some physical activity while connecting with other wound care professionals. At the end of each day, participants logged in the number of steps they walked and could monitor their personal standing.
