BurnNet Survivors Meeting

The BurnNet Survivors Meeting is a twice monthly meeting where burn survivors and survivors of necrotizing fasciitis, families and significant others discuss issues and raise questions related to their injury.

The meeting is facilitated by the Firefighters Burn Institute Regional Burn Center Burn Outreach Coordinator and a SOAR peer. They provide a relaxed, safe and undisturbed atmosphere, conducive to the needs of all those who attend. UC Davis Medical Center is a Survivors Offering Assistance in Recovery (SOAR) — designated facility, some of our peer support volunteers will serve as a source of hope and inspiration to those impacted by a burn injury. Questions are answered and anxieties related to the injuries can be diminished or alleviated in this safe haven. Useful topics are discussed each month to aid in the participants’ understanding of the various stages of injury, rehabilitation and recovery.
 
Other specialists are featured in Lunch Bunch sessions, held the second Thursday of each month from 12:00 to 12:30 p.m. They speak to topics like cosmetics, vocational rehabilitation and physical therapy, and reconstructive options. Sign up through our Google Form.
 
The Firefighters Burn Institute also hosts a Yoga + Mindfulness or light exercise session in the evening most months on the fourth Thursday. Email valorie@ffburn.org for more information or call (916) 739-8525 and ask for Valorie.
 
Caregiver Support Meetings are held virtually on the fifth Thursday when there are five Thursdays in a month. Email valorie@ffburn.org for more information or call (916) 739-8525 and ask for Valorie.
