“NABS is a very fun, very personal, family-friendly and very science oriented society! I never thought I would actually think about optimal donor site dressings or how to best treat scar pain while riding in a gondola. I’ve also never been so warmly welcomed by any professional group. This atmosphere is clearly conducive to a true exchange of thought.”

“I really liked the laid back atmosphere, as well as the size of this conference. It allowed for more interpersonal exchanges with other participants – something not common at larger conferences. Encouraging attendees to bring their families and having it timed around skiing or other activities was awesome! Also unique, was having company representatives give short presentations about their products, the research behind them and what technologies are forthcoming was also very helpful. This was a great meeting!”

“Physicians, residents, nurses, nutritionists, physical therapists alike need to attend symposia to keep current, broaden our horizons, and learn the tricks of the trade. No single meeting has ever left me with more fond memories than the NABS meetings I have attended. The intimacy of the group, the relaxed exchange of ideas, the insights, and humorous interactions makes the NABS meeting one you remember, not one you forget a month later.”

“NABS is not only for burn specialists but for any in the medical world whose knowledge or willingness to learn can be shared during a skiing venue. I am a child neurologist. I have enjoyed my many NABS outings over the past 25 years, the comradery, presentations, dining, hi jinks, laughter and song. I encourage fun-and-knowledge-seeking professionals and their families to attend one meeting. You will want to return.”

“The North American Burn Society has always represented a welcome mid-winter break from the routine. The meeting provides the opportunity to share information and research ideas with colleagues, learn about new burn care products, and ski with friends at a major winter resort. The far ranging discussions with various members of the burn team over delicious dinners put the icing on the cake and give added value to our meetings. The science and camaraderie of the meetings entice everyone to begin thinking about the next NABS gathering even before summer ends in September.”

“Being a past president of NABS is one of my fondest memories. There are few multi-specialty professional groups in medicine that join with industrial representatives to discuss state of the art techniques, technologies, and research in a relaxed atmosphere of cordiality, friendship, exercise, and relaxation. Joined by a love of skiing, we enjoy a lifetime of great experiences.”
