Wilderness Medicine in Snowmass
I had the privilege to teach as an instructor of an Advanced Wilderness Life Support (AWLS) program, which is a practical approach to the treatment of injuries and illnesses experienced at a distance from traditional medical assistance. It is a certification program about which I will write more in a future post.
The comaraderie and enthusiasm are awesome, and it's a wonderful opportunity for me to learn the latest and greatest, and catch up with my wilderness medicine friends. Snowmass is gorgeous, and what little free time we have is spent hiking and mountain biking on the trails that wind around Snowmass and Aspen. With a little luck, we'll find a few hours to visit the Maroon Bells, and hopefully not have to use any of our wilderness medicine expertise.
