The WHSI Health Technology Assessment Conference has taken place annually for the past 19 years. Presented by the non-profit organization the Peter Sheehan Diabetes Care Foundation, the conference unites thought leaders from a variety of healthcare fields with the common goal of working toward a world with no amputations.
Our conference provides the premier opportunity for healthcare professionals to experience the latest vascular and wound care education.
We welcome clinical, academic, and industry professionals to lead discussions and keynote presentations on innovations in the field. Participants enjoy networking opportunities, cutting-edge research, product, and technology presentations. They have the opportunity to partake in activities, and to explore breakthrough clinical approaches in their field.
Aside from our educational opportunities, participants enjoy a platform that promotes the open exchange of ideas and information with regard to amputation prevention. Our networking and educational opportunities are focused on the priorities of healthcare professionals.
Our partners in the science and technology community have helped us develop state-of-the-art solutions for better scientific understanding that translates to quality, patient-centered care.
