APROQUEN presents at the 50th American Burn Association Conference (ABA)

Our Founder and President, Mrs. Vivian Pellas participated in the recent American Burn Association Conference held from April 9th-13th. During this meeting, our Founder and President had the opportunity to share APROQUEN’s work with Dr. David Harrington, Director of Surgery from the Burn Center in Rhode Island and Gretchen J. Carrougher Research Nurse from the Surgery department at the medical Center of Harborview in Washington.

This conference brings together many professionals in the burn world including doctors, therapists, researchers and burn survivors.  A delegation from APROQUEN participated in a variety of educational sessions to enhance knowledge and skills with the objective to strengthen the quality of our treatment services.

APROQUEN’s participation is of vital importance during this conference as it explores an ABA verification for our burn center.  This ABA verification would provide APROQUEN with a true mark of distinction within burn care in Latin America.
