Boston ABA 3

Last week was¬†the American Burn Association’s 49th Annual Meeting in Boston, MA. The photo above was taken from Hynes Convention Center, the location for the majority of the conference. We enjoyed catching up with colleagues from burn communities across the United States, learning about the new research out there, and spreading the word about the LIBRE Project!
