Phoenix World Burn Congress 2017

Each year hundreds of burn survivors from all over the world come together to share their stories, find resources for their recovery and build a network for support. The Phoenix World Burn Congress is the world’s largest gathering of the burn community, connecting attendees with resources, support, and each other.

This year’s WBC was held October 4-7th in Dallas, TX. For many, it is the first chance to connect with others on the journey of recovery after a burn injury. World Burn Congress (WBC) can be a life changing experience, not only for burn survivors, but for their family, friends and caregivers as well. WBC offers a supportive environment for transformational healing and gives those affected by burn injuries the tools to thrive again.

Firefighters Burn Institute was proud to provide 20 scholarships to help burn nurses, burn survivors and their families to attend an opportunity to embrace the experience. The conference helps burn survivors and their families understand and cope with the physical and emotional challenges associated with burn recovery. WBC not only offers burn survivors the chance to meet others overcoming similar challenges, but also gives the hope and encouragement to go beyond merely surviving. You can read the program highlights on the Phoenix Society blog.

Without your continued support, scholarships like these would not be possible. Your donations make a difference by directly helping burn survivors who otherwise could not afford to attend these programs on their own.

We thank you for your continued support. We could not do what we do without you!
