World Burn Congress

Phoenix Society, in an effort to support burn survivors and burn care professionals, holds virtual and/or in-person international events. These events provide opportunities to meet new people, share stories and experiences, and learn more about advances in burn recovery. Many of the attendees, which include burn survivors, their families, care givers, burn care professionals, firefighters, and volunteers, describe the offerings as life changing with the many stories of hope and courage.

The North Carolina Jaycee Burn Center has been proud to co-host this international in-person conference twice, in 2004 and in 2008.
