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. The Phoenix World Burn Congress is the world’s largest gathering of the burn community, connecting attendees with resources, support, and each other.
World Burn Congress 2021 will be held virtually from October 22-24, 2021. An additional event will be held May 14 called Phoenix World Burn Congress: Engage 2021.
WBC 2021 was held virtually October 23-25. For many, it was the first chance to connect with others on the journey of recovery after a burn injury. 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.
Firefighters Burn Institute is proud to annually provide scholarships to help burn nurses, burn survivors, and their families to attend an opportunity to attend the congress and embrace the experience. 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.

Without your continued support, scholarships like these would not be possible. Your donations make a difference by directly helping burn survivors who otherwise could not afford to attend these programs on their own.
We thank you for your continued support. We could not do what we do without you!
