Unfortunately, I cannot attend these conferences…But I thought I would spread the word because they are going to be great! Anybody with an interest in wilderness medicine should consider going to these events.
You can learn some great survival skills, how to treat AMS (acute mountain sickness) and altitude related problems, diving medicine, treatment of ski and snowbaord injuries, travel with kids in the wilds, lightening strikes, navigation and a chance to get in some ski/board time, when not learning! Both conferences are accredited by the WMS (wilderness medical society) and have some of the best instructors in the field.
Anyway, I am jealous of anybody who gets to go…have fun for me! Also, if you go, you have to tell me about it!
