Education and Support

If you and your family are seeking additional education and support for burn and wound care, Miami Valley Hospital’s Adult Regional Burn Center offers a support group and articles about various types of burns and wounds.

Burn Center Support Group

Burn injuries can be traumatic for injured individuals and their families. The road to physical and emotional recovery may be long, and we understand that the emotional toll is sometimes as great or greater for the family members who are helping their loved ones to cope.

Miami Valley Hospital’s Burn Support Group, offered the first Tuesday of the month at 5 p.m., provides hope and healing to individuals in post-burn recovery. This group is facilitated by burn center staff, with much of the support coming from former burn-injured individuals and their families. You can discuss your questions and concerns with others who have walked the path you are walking.

The meetings are open to all individuals with past or present burn injuries and their families. Each meeting will start with a topic that is important to burn recovery, followed by topics that are important to those attending the meeting.
