NABS Annual Conference Another BIG Success
The North American Burn Society’s 35th Annual Conference was held January 14-19 in Breckenridge, CO. Over 50 attendees and 14 vendors enjoyed a variety of highly informative burn-related presentations, along with fabulous skiing conditions that included fresh powder daily! Non-skiing participants enjoyed other outings such as snowmobiling, ice skating, and snow-shoeing. Don’t forget to mark your calendars for the 2018 conference in Steamboat Springs, CO – which will take place March 10-15th, 2018. Be there – or be talked about!


New Officer Named to NABS Executive Committee

  Margaret Seiler Stolpen, PT

Margaret has been appointed to the position of Treasurer for the North American Burn Society. She is also a past president of NABS (2006). A native of New Jersey, Margaret has been a big part of NABS as both a corporate sponsor for the former Genzyme company (now Vericel) and as a healthcare professional. She has enjoyed the family aspect of NABS along with her husband and son who are also big fans of the meeting. “My son’s first ski lesson was at the 2006 NABS meeting when he was 3 years old. I’m so happy to be able to continue helping the society. There really aren’t any organizations in my profession where they encourage you to bring your family to its annual meeting. Not only is it fun, I also get to learn a lot of new things.” Margaret has been a member of NABS since 1998.
