Blocker Burn Unit and OLLI

This collaboration between burn survivors and members of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) writing group will facilitate the creation, publication and distribution of an anthology of 20 to 25 short stories outlining the recovery process in an effort to offer hope and inspiration to other survivors. These stories of resilience and challenges will outline the struggles, vulnerability, gratitude and healing process of each survivor and will be distributed to patients admitted to the UTMB Blocker Burn Unit.
