Horizon’s 14th Annual Wound & Skintastic Day

Horizon’s annual Wound & Skintastic Day is dedicated to the prevention and management of wounds, using the latest best practices and hearing from leading experts in the field.

For the last 13 years the conference has attracted over 250 health care team members who are excited to learn more about wound care management.

The virtual format was a welcomed addition in 2020 so we will continue to offer the conference virtually this year. It will also be available for participants to watch the sessions for 30 days after the conference.
