World Burn Congress 2023
“This was my first time, I’ve participated before in adult retreats in San Diego, and I always have felt very welcomed by my burn peers, but when I saw tons and tons of gorgeous human beings there, happy and ready to share experiences and stories, I felt that I am not alone. “- World Burn Congress Attendee
This amazing weekend had so many opportunities for burn survivors to connect, listen to one another, learn, grow, heal, and share. Participants heard from speakers, participated in workshops, and listened to one another tell their stories during Open Mic sessions. Over the weekend, the San Diego group met burn survivors from across the country and gained new skills and mindsets to help in their healing journey.
“WBC allowed me to connect with others who shared similar feelings or other aspects of my own journey that I may have not experienced before. It made me feel even more whole inside, something I did not realize I was looking for.”- First Time World Burn Attendee
