Burn Survivors Connect

Burn Survivors Connect is a support group that meets monthly for burn survivors and their significant others to socialize and discuss issues of interest. Useful topics are discussed each month and guest speakers are often invited to aid in the participants’ understanding of the various stages of burn injury, rehabilitation and recovery. The setting is casual and we encourage a fun atmosphere that is welcoming to all who attend.

The meetings are facilitated by members of our burn team. As a Survivors Offering Assistance in Recovery (SOAR)-designated facility, some of our support volunteers will serve as a source of inspiration to those who have experienced a burn injury.

Mission Statement:
Through our monthly group meetings and internet outreach, we strive to increase access to valuable health education, psychological and social resources. Our goal is to create community, facilitate interaction and encourage peer support among burn survivors for optimal recovery.

Those not treated at Tampa General Hospital are welcome to join this group.
