About WHS

Founded in 1989, the Wound Healing Society (WHS) is the premier scientific organization focused on wound healing. A nonprofit organization composed of clinical and basic scientists and wound care specialists, the mission of the WHS
is to improve wound healing outcomes through science, professional education, and communication.

The WHS provides a forum for interaction among scientists, clinicians, and other wound care practitioners, industrial representatives, and government agencies. The WHS is open to individuals who are interested in the field of wound healing and presently comprises more than 500 members in the United States and other countries.

The Society’s journal, Wound Repair and Regeneration, is the leading journal in the discipline. The WHS also publishes a periodical called Advances in Wound Care, an authoritative desktop reference for all wound care professionals.
