Sage Products’ signature donation wall at Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nurses Society’s 49th annual conference

Sage Products sponsors five first-time poster presenters

CARY, IL, May 15, 2017 – Sage Products LLC will sponsor five first-time poster presenters at the upcoming Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nurses (WOCN) Conference. The 2017 conference will take place May 19-23 at the Calvin L. Rampton Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Along with the first-time presenters, the Sage signature wall will be at the conference in the Sage booth. For a $5 donation, attendees can sign the board, which raises money for the WOCN Foundation Scholarship Fund. By posting a selfie with the wall to social media, following Sage on Facebook, Twitter and/or LinkedIn and hashtagging #SageSupportsWOCN, donors are entered into a drawing for admission to next year’s conference, a $675 value. Last year, the board received 900 signatures, raising $4,500.
