Learn more about Phoenix World Burn Congress

Phoenix World Burn Congress (WBC) is the world’s largest gathering of the burn community, connecting attendees with support, resources, and each other.

For many, it’s the first chance to connect with others on the journey of recovery from a burn injury. The conference offers programming for burn survivors, their loved ones, and allied professionals.
