2009 Wilderness Medical Society Medical Conference and Annual Meeting in Snowmass

The Wilderness Medical Society (WMS) Medical Conference and Annual Meeting has just been announced. The meeting will be held July 24-29, 2009 in Snowmass, Colorado. As always, it will be a terrific setting and a phenomenal meeting.

Doctors and other healthcare professionals can access the meeting brochure and online registration at The program committee has gone to great lengths to make this meeting special, with new sessions, faculty, and recreation options, and more exciting outdoor activities. For persons who have not attended a WMS meeting in a while, this would be a great one. Indeed, for anyone interested in wilderness and outdoor medicine, this is the finest meeting around. Please join me and the other instructors this summer and help us all learn more to advance the field of wilderness medicine.
