|Keswick Expedition & Wilderness Medicine Course05 March 2012 to 08 March 2012
We are starting to get geared up here at EWM for the first of our Expedition & Wilderness Medicine courses in the Lake District. It is always particularly stunning at this time of year, even worth staying on after the course to enjoy.
We are also looking forward to welcoming back our peripatetic medical directors old and new. During the course Drs Sean Hudson and Caroline Knox are going to be sharing their experience of working as ski field medics on New Zealand’s South Island and working at Union Glacier in Antarctica, whilst our incumbent director Dr Amy Hughes has just returned from an intensive six month stint with MSF in the northern part of Sri Lanka – (formerly held by Tamil Tigers) – and she will using the Rupert Bennett Memorial Lecture slot to tell the story of her journey.
We are also really pleased to be welcoming back Professor Chris Imray to talk about his involvement in the Caudwell Xtreme Everest Expedition and his recent climb up Denali in Alaska, and Dr Rob Conway, founder of the award winning marine conservation charity Blue Ventures. This is, of course, as well as our regular team of eclectic medics.
We were fortunate to be visited by ITV’s John Bevir during last September’s course and his report makes interesting viewing. Watch it here.
