Dr. Daniel Caruso World Burn Congress Scholarship

World Burn Congress

October 2-5, 2019 | Anaheim, CA

The Phoenix Society’s World Burn Congress is an annual international conference that brings together more than 800 burn survivors, their families, caregivers, burn care professionals, and firefighters. It is a forum for encouraging and facilitating the sharing of stories, providing support and increasing knowledge of burn recovery.  For many it is the first opportunity to meet and share with others who have experienced a burn trauma. The conference also serves as a wonderful learning experience for burn care professionals to better understand the issues that impact burn survivors’ lives.  Many firefighters that have attended discuss the closure it brings for them as they witness burn survivors and their families living meaningful lives.

Dr. Daniel Caruso World Burn Congress Scholarship Program

The Arizona Burn Foundation has been providing scholarships to attend the World Burn Congress to burn survivors in Arizona for numerous years.  Each scholarship covers 100% of the costs involved in participating in the four-day World Burn Congress conference. This includes travel accommodations to and from the event, registration fees, and lodging. Meals not included are the scholarship recipient’s responsibility. In 2017, the World Burn Congress Scholarship Program was renamed the Dr. Daniel Caruso World Burn Congress Scholarship program, in honor of the late Dr. Daniel Caruso, esteemed burn surgeon and long-time Arizona Burn Foundation supporter.
