President's Message

This urgent cry which has become part of our folklore is still very much with us because everyone knows that firefighters love children; That they will perform almost superhuman feats of daring to save a child from fire, however, not everyone knows that FIREFIGHTERS KEEP ON CARING EVEN AFTER THE FIRE IS OUT!


At this years American Burn Association Conference, as with every year, the staff of Cornell Burn Center submitted a multitude of research projects. We were in awe of the great research that is being done everyday inside the walls of the hospital to further burn care. We would like to congratulate every staff member on a fantastic job, and especially would like to congratulate the team who took 1st place in their category for their project on Digital Photography and Burn Center Clinician Workflow. Keep up the great work!!!!
