Events & Activities
Provided by the Firefighters Burn Institute
The Firefighters Burn Institute provides a limited number of scholarships for burn survivors and the medical professionals that care for them to attend the Phoenix Society’s “World Burn Congress”. The scholarship typically includes roundtrip airfare, hotel costs for approved conference nights and conference registration.
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. 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. World Burn Congress is the world’s largest gathering of the burn community, connecting attendees with resources, support, and each other.
The Firefighters Burn Institute is honored to provide scholarships to those in need who would not otherwise be able to experience this life changing conference. 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.
