Ph.D. candidate Meier awarded funds to examine ways to better help burn survivors

September 10, 2014

UW-Madison’s Elaina Meier, a Ph.D. candidate with the Department of Counseling Psychology, was recently awarded support from two different organizations to help further her research into providing psychological support to burn survivors, and improving care for this population.

One award is the Phoenix Education Grant (PEG), which is allocated by the Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors, a leading national nonprofit organization that is “dedicated to empowering anyone affected by a burn injury through peer support, education and advocacy.”

The other award is the Cliff Haskell Perpetual Scholarship, which is presented by the Firefighter's Burn Institute (FFBI), a non-profit dedicated to "providing recovery programs for burn survivors; providing fire and burn prevention through public education; funding education for burn team professionals, firefighters and burn survivors; and supporting burn treatment and rehabilitation research."
