Week round-up

Christian FisherI have been far too busy lately and most of my time has been reading other websites that have tons of interesting information, all related to travel and expedition medicine.  Here’s some of what I have been reading lately:

Matador Travel:

Juli Huang wrote a great article about “Three essential Medical books for Travelers“…very good selections, I must say!

I submitted an article about Planning for Medical Emergencies while traveling

National Geographic Adventure Blog:

The climbing death of Rob Gauntlett, Nat Geo’s Adventurer of the Year

World Nomads Safety Blog:

I am very proud that World Nomads has two articles, from me!  One about DVT and Travel and another discussing a recent polio outbreak in Western Africa.  They also have a great article about travel to “dangerous locations“…check it out!

Medicine for the Outdoors:

Dr. Auerbach has produced several very good posts on winter accidents and avalanche safety.

Exped Med Conference:

April 1-4 of 2009 is the San Diego Exped Med Conference at the Hotel Del!  I am so sad that I cannot attend this one but I did make their Washington DC event and can say that it was one of the coolest learning experiences of my life!  Anybody looking to brush up their expedition medical skills or a way to break into these jobs should attend.
