Engagement of the Community in Burn Education

Blocker Burn Unit

According to the American Burn Association, there are 4,000 deaths and 600,000 injuries from fire and burns each year nationwide. While these numbers are staggering, the resources needed to provide education on burn prevention and recovery is inadequate or lacking. Through the collaboration of survivors and healthcare professionals, this project will fund the development, implementation, publication and distribution of booklets relating to burn prevention and treatment. These materials will be used to educate patients at UTMB and throughout our local and regional communities.
