* Platinum Sponsor. In a previously published list of corporate platinum sponsors for its 2007 conference event, the APWCA regrettably omitted Medline Industries, Inc, Advanced Skin and Wound Care (Mundelein, IL). The APWCA leaders asserted that they are proud to be a recipient of this sponsor's vital support.
