Stryker will provide the WOCN® Society with an unrestricted educational grant to provide a limited number of travel scholarships to support first-time abstract presenters with a focus on Preventative Practices for Wounds. If your submission meets this criteria, you should check off the first-time presenter button and make sure you choose Wellness under the Wound category.
