Abstract:
North Carolina's Jaycee Burn Center at UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill is one of the foremost burn prevention and treatment programs in the world. It offers the National Fire Association's Learn Not to Burn Program. Ernest Grant, a nurse at the burn center, brought the program to Chapel Hill. The goal of the program is to keep people out of the burn center and reduce injuries. To assist in accomplishing this goal, the North Carolina State Department of Public Instruction endorsed the use of the program as part of the fourth grade curriculum.

Abstract:
Every year between 400 and 500 North Carolinians are victims of significant burn accidents. Of that number 100 to 175 people suffer third and fourth degree burns. Only a few of these ever receive the complete treatment they need to keep them alive and return them to relatively normal lives. North Carolina has few burn specialists and no burn center. The nearest burn centers are in Richmond and Atlanta. Lefler discusses the burn problems with Dr. A Griswold Bevin. Bevin is chief of plastic and reconstructive surgery and surgery of the hand at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Medical School and is also responsible for the hospital's limited six-bed burn unit.

The expanded center was first proposed in 1971, when the then six-bed burn center was considered too limited in space and capabilities. The new center has twenty-three beds and state-of-the-art equipment.
