I have been quite busy this past week with working on the clinic! Hopefully, people will get a chance to visit the website AdventureDocClinic.com and see the new changes. I also had some time to review my reading and try to catch up on what is going on in the world of Travel and Expedition Medicine…Here’s what I found:
- A new method of reducing a dislocated shoulder was reported: The FARES technique. Although originally published in another journal, a good description can be found on Eorthopod.com
- The Medical Fusion Conference has set its faculty and speakers for their upcoming event in San Diego June 11-13th. This conference looks at non-clinical careers for physicians including writing, entrepreneurship and medical device manufacture/design. Dr. Greg Bledsoe is the organizer and his conferences are always well designed, informative and a delight to attend!
- A website called World Travel Watch is really impressive and I wanted to let others know about it! This site has helped travelers stay aware of threats around the world since 1985.
- I am very excited about a regular column I am writing for Porthole Cruise Magazine. I finally got to see the first article a few days ago and they made it look wonderful. The magazine is devoted to cruising and cruise lifestyle so I am writing a section on staying healthy while on board. More can be seen on their website.
- I hope everybody liked my story about our recent trip to Baja with the Flying Samaritans. I am already excited about my trip coming up next month!
