The Mamingwey Burn Society is delighted to be hosting their next conference! This educational event is open to anyone affected by a burn injury, including all burn survivors, their families and friends, and all burn unit health care providers and firefighters to attend. The conference will take place on Friday, October 20th starting in the early afternoon, and all day on Saturday October 21st at the Canad Inns Polo Park Hotel in Winnipeg.
Our theme this year is ‘Small Steps, Big Impact‘, and our keynote speaker is Lea Elder, a burn survivor as well as a burn nurse. Lea was burned in a house fire when she was a child, and after attending a burn camp, her life was transformed. Not only does she now work with burn survivors, she is also on the Board of Directors at the Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation in California. The conference will also include sessions given by health care professionals on ‘Microaggression’, ’The Effects of Trauma’, and ‘Grief after Loss’; there will be sharing circles, a panel presentation featuring local survivors, as well as a dinner with entertainment to complete the conference.
