Wilderness Medicine

xcpatientsThe nightmare of anyone leading a backcountry trip, with your family or other people relying on you, is that someone is seriously hurt, falls in the water, or gets too cold. You can’t get the person to a doctor for many hours or even days. You just don’t know what to do. On the next Outdoor Explore, we’re going to talk about that terrifying situation and how to solve it. We’re talking about wilderness medicine with Dr. Andy Elsberg, who is an experienced outdoors man as well as an emergency room doctor, and with Deb Ajango, director of SafetyEd which specializes in safety education for outdoor and remote environments. Join us for a conversation about keeping you and your loved ones alive on the next Outdoor Explorer.
