Getting wild for medicine
For its 30th anniversary this year, the Salt Lake City-based Wilderness Medical Society decided to say it with paper. Posters, to be exact.
The group commissioned a series of nine posters “in the style of the grand art deco travel posters of the early 20th century,” according to its website. The posters celebrate its various member activities, including its third Everest Base Camp Trek set for March 24-April 13 next year. The accredited hands-on wilderness medical training will be held in the Khumbu Valley of Nepal.
The society’s recent annual conference and meeting in Breckenridge, Colo., was preceded by a “Wilderness Athlete” sports medicine workshop. Other posters feature member activities revolving around sailing, emergency medicine, environmental change, mountain medicine and dive medicine. You can see all the posters at: bit.ly/13DIaRH
