Adventures in Medicine in the Wall Street Journal
In the July 25, 2007 issue of the Wall Street Journal, Laura Landro wrote a terrific article entitled Adventures in Medicine as an installment of her regular feature The Informed Patient. It is an overview of wilderness medicine, and features information about the Wilderness Medical Society and a few of its members, such as Luanne Freer, M.D., Colin Grissom, M.D., and Eric Johnson, M.D. As part of the on-line feature, there is a link to a brief slide show depicting rescue situations.
I always enjoy reading Ms. Landro's articles, and of course, am especially delighted with this one. The wilderness medicine community welcomes her to the fold, and I'm hopeful that she'll apply her reporting expertise and enthusiasm to many more outdoor health-related topics in future columns.
