Press Release - Phoenix World Burn Congress 2014 in Anaheim, CA
International Burn Survivor Gathering Focuses on Need for More Long-Term Recovery Services
Anaheim, CA – A severe burn can be one of the most painful injuries that a human body can suffer, both physically and emotionally. For many families, the difficulty in finding access to long-term support services can add to their burden as they work to heal the physical and emotional scars. As survival rates climb over 96% (American Burn Association) in U.S. Burn Centers, there is a greater need for long-term recovery services to meet the physical and emotional needs of burn survivors and their families. This is the message that more than 900 burn survivors, their families, caregivers, burn care professionals and firefighters will share with the world at the Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors® 26th annual Phoenix World Burn Congress® on October 22 to 25 at the Hilton Anaheim in California.
