Avadim Technologies Inc. CEO Steve Woody To Present At The 5th Annual Microbiome R&D and Business Collaboration Forum: USA
Woody Calls for a Paradigm Shift in Rethinking Infection Prevention and Innovative Outcomes With New Microbiome Therapies Like Theraworx® Technology
ASHEVILLE, NC, November 1, 2017 – Avadim Technologies Inc. (“Avadim”), the Bionome Therapies™ life sciences company, today announced that its CEO, Steve Woody, will be one of the leading industry experts to speak at the 5th Annual Microbiome R&D and Business Collaboration Forum: USA, one of the world’s leading microbiome conferences, on November 2-3 in San Diego, California. This year’s conference is expected to attract over 400 attendees in the field, with the leading microbiome scientists, academics, and investors looking to establish partnerships, collaborations, and gain insight into the challenges and opportunities facing our microbiomes in health and disease by bringing innovative therapies to the market.
During his presentation, Woody will challenge the outdated approach currently used to prevent infection through decontamination and eradication of all microorganisms on the skin, and introduce the new 21st Century approach of optimizing the patient’s skin immunology for unprecedented health outcomes. Woody states, “This session will address deficiencies in the old paradigm of decolonization for infection prevention and highlight the new paradigm of microbiome management. The microbiome of the skin and associated tissue are key to establishing and maintaining a balance of healthy flora on the skin, resulting in an appropriate way to manage the infections that plague hospitals around the globe.”
