CALGARY, AB, CANADA, March 17, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Kent Imaging is pleased to announce the appointment of Jeffrey Niezgoda, MD, FACHM, MAPWCA, CHWS as Chief Medical Officer. In his new role, Dr. Niezgoda will be responsible for providing medical and clinical leadership for Kent’s wound care, hyperbaric and vascular surgery product strategy and clinical integration.

He is President and Chief Marketing Officer of WebCME, an international education company providing wound care and hyperbaric education. He is president of the American Professional Wound Care Association and past president of the American College of Hyperbaric Medicine. As an early adopter and supporter of Kent’s flagship SnapshotNIR product, Dr. Niezgoda has been using the device for nearly 4 years.
“I am honored to be Kent Imaging’s Chief Medical Officer. The Snapshot technology is truly revolutionary and will have an indelible impact on the practice of wound care,” says Dr. Niezgoda.

The Kent team is made up of talented and dedicated people who work together to achieve excellence. I’m thrilled to be part of this great organization.”
