Asheville, North Carolina – June 4, 2015, Avadim Technologies Inc. and its new paradigm skin hygiene product, Theraworx®, gained valuable national publicity this week with the publication of the June issue of Healthcare Purchasing News, the most widely-read industry journal for hospital Supply Chain and Value Analysis professionals, and an industry publication also routinely read by many hospital clinicians.

In an article written by HPN’s Managing Editor, Valerie Dimond, introducing HPN’s annual Infection Prevention products issue, the first product mentioned, among several leading products, was Theraworx.  Steve Woody, Avadim’s CEO, was extensively quoted, including this concluding quote:  “We feel that we have to change the traditional thinking about protecting the patient from infection (decolonizing the skin aggressively, and invasion of pathogens can be avoided) to a new paradigm, where the incredibly effective and well-developed immune and anti-infective protections of the skin’s stratum corneum are preserved and reinforced, rather than being damaged.”

The other two products mentioned on the front page of this overview article were from 3M and Johnson & Johnson, so Avadim and Theraworx Technology were in solid company in Ms. Dimond’s article.

This national publicity should benefit Avadim greatly as the company prepares to exhibit later this month at the annual conference of the Association for Practitioners in Infection Control and Epidemiology in Nashville TN, June 26-29.
