5 Ways to Keep Connected After Phoenix World Burn Congress
Phoenix World Burn Congress 2014 wrapped up two weeks ago with record attendance of over 1,000 people attending the annual, international conference.
The conference offers a unique and powerful opportunity for people to come together to offer support, increase their knowledge of burn recovery, and share inspiring stories. For many burn survivors, this is their first opportunity to connect with others on the journey of burn recovery. It can be a profound and life-changing experience. So naturally, it can be difficult to transition back to “normal” life after the conference.
Connections are a big part of the reason that Phoenix WBC is so powerful, so we want to help keep those connections alive throughout the year. Here are 5 ways to keep connected after Phoenix World Burn Congress.
