Cornell Wilderness Medicine: Alaska Adventure

This announcement is just in from my friends at Cornell Wilderness Medicine:

Learn practical wilderness medicine skills in the ultimate wilderness—Alaska! Raft the stunningly beautiful Copper River, past bears, moose, eagles, seals, calving glaciers, and the towering peaks of the Wrangell and Chugach mountains. Designed for physicians and health care professionals, this deluxe expedition includes a full week of rafting a mix of flat and whitewater, with a heady mixture of learning and adventure. Earn 12 CMEs (pending) with Cornell Wilderness Medicine faculty and crack Alaskan guides, and explore side trails, fish backwaters, or simply gaze out on the rugged grandeur that is Alaska, in the near 24 hours of daylight of the Midnight Sun. No experience necessary and spouses and family members welcome.
