Phoenix Society's World Burn Congress
SURVIVAL, COURAGE AND PERSONAL GROWTH
The Phoenix Society's World Burn Congress is an annual international conference that brings together more than 800 burn survivors, their families, care givers, burn care professionals and firefighters.
It is a forum in which we encourage and facilitate the sharing of stories, provide support and increase knowledge of burn recovery. For many it is the first opportunity to meet and share with others who have experienced a burn trauma.
The conference also serves as a wonderful learning experience for burn care professionals to better understand the issues that impact burn survivors' lives. Many firefighters that have attended discuss the closure it brings for them as they witness burn survivors and their families living meaningful lives.
We hope you will join us and experience it for yourselves!
We're going to Rhode Island! The Phoenix Society's 2013 World Burn Congress will be held in Providence, Rhode Island October 9-12, 2013.
