Speaker Bio
Josh Gropper is a lawyer and the managing partner of Gropper & Nejat, PLLC in New York City, and has devoted his long professional career to being an advocate – and a resource – for the significantly injured and their families.

Josh helped initiate the SOAR (Survivors Offering Assistance in Recovery) chapter at Nassau University Medical Center on Long Island where his younger brother Danny, a burn survivor and quadruple amputee, volunteers. Josh has previously been a speaker and panelist at prior World Burn Congresses.

Josh – along with countless others – has been inspired by Danny’s wonderful sense of humor and has seen first-hand how Danny uses his comic gifts to deal effectively with “the elephant in the room” which helps set those around him at ease.

Josh is eager to showcase Danny’s comic gifts with other burn survivors and to discuss the healing power of comedy from a medical and psychological point of view with an eye towards empowering other burn survivors."
