About ABA

History

The American Burn Association was founded in 1967, following a series of national burn seminars sponsored by leading institutions in the field of burn treatment. Since its inception, the Association has been dedicated to stimulating and supporting burn-related research, education, care, rehabilitation, and prevention. To advance these goals, the ABA sponsors educational programs, fellowships, research, teaching and publications, including the leading peer-reviewed, scientific journal in the burn field, the Journal of Burn Care and Research (David N. Herndon, MD, FACS, Editor-in-Chief).
