What is the Burn Institute?
Pre-COVID, the 340B conference would host a fun run/walk fundraiser for a specific charity. Because the conference is remote this year, the conference chose a simple online fundraiser for Burn Institute.
According to the 340B Winter Conference website, “Each year, the Burn Institute reaches 1,000s of youth, adults, and seniors in San Diego and Imperial Counties. With our programs and services, we help prevent fires – and the injuries that can result. For individuals with burn injuries and their families, we provide support programs and financial assistance that gives coping skills, true community, and hope.”
