Wilderness Medicine Magazine
There is a special section entitled Wilderness Reflections that features "North Appalachia November," "Our Big Patient" (environmental theme), "Generation 'W' - The Next Generation of Wilderness Adventurers and Wilderness Medical Experts," "The Joys and Challenges of Field Research in Remote Wilderness Areas," and "Education at 18,000 Feet."
It gets better from there, with articles about identifying poisonous plants, profiling certain past presidents of the WMS, food for the trail, advice about lower back pain encountered during scuba diving and swimming, wilderness medicine on top of the world, wilderness medicine at the Medical College of Georgia, and more.
The layout is attractive, the images sharp and colorful, and the commentaries extremely well written. I am very proud of the Editor, Chris Van Tilburg, M.D., and the editorial staff, headed by Jonna Barry. They continually strive to make Wilderness Medicine a "great read," and judging by this particular issue, are succeeding greatly. This is truly a great benefit to being a member of the WMS, so check it out.
Preview the 25th Anniversary & Annual Meeting of the Wilderness Medical Society, which will be held in Snowmass, Colorado July 25-30, 2008.
