One Day Burn Community Event

10:30AM – 6:30PM (EST) | 7:30AM – 3:30PM (PST) 

How is Phoenix WBC: Engage different than the annual Phoenix World Burn Congress? 

Think of Phoenix WBC: Engage as another chance to experience your favorite parts of Phoenix World Burn Congress. No need to wait until October, because this one-day event has it all: inspiring speakers, informative learning sessions, open mic, and more! 


We get it – virtual fatigue is a real thing. So why should you register for another virtual event? 

Here are 5 reasons not to miss Phoenix WBC: Engage

1) Inspiring Speakers + Informative Sessions

Celebrate radical self-love and transformational healing with Sonya Renee Taylor’s Keynote Presentation: The Body Is Not An Apology.

Share your truth and find hope through others’ experiences with Healing Through Our Stories – Open Mic. (This session will not be available on-demand so be sure not to miss it!)

Learning sessions are your chance to soak up wisdom from survivors and burn support professionals:

  • Getting Back Out There: Tools for Self-Care

  • Skin Care After a Burn Injury (featuring special guest Kechi Okwuchi)

  • Healing With Guided Imagery

  • Community Reintegration for Youth Burn Survivors

Be sure to stick around to dive deeper into the topic with live Q+As and group discussions.

2) You Set the Pace

If you can’t make a session or can’t decide which session to join – no problem! Most sessions will be available on-demand for 60 days after the event. Our speakers and the survivor community are here to help, so don’t worry if you have questions after the event has ended. We will help you get the best answers.

3) No Travel Required

Phoenix WBC: Engage is a Virtual Event. You can connect from anywhere and with any internet enabled device. There are webcam and phone-only options for every session.

4) Improved Virtual Experience

We heard the feedback – you wanted more opportunities to connect with each other and topics that are relevant to you! Our learnings from Phoenix WBC 2020 have been applied to create this one-day event, where you can join from anywhere and come as you are.

5) Your Community is Waiting

Nothing heals people like other people. Connect with your community in the chat, through post-session discussions, and during Open Mic, then wrap up your day with a live networking session. This chance to see familiar faces and meet new friends will refresh your spirit, renew your sense of belonging, and inspire you to stay connected.
