If you’ve read our #WEM19 Day 1 Highlights blog, you’ll know that we’ve got a jam-packed first day full of inspiration and learning, looking at Expedition and Wilderness Medicine in all its forms – from the most remote regions of Antarctica to the deepest depths of space.
Just in case you hadn’t had the chance to check out what’s on offer (and we highly recommend that you do!!), we thought we’d take a minute to shine a spotlight on one of the exciting workshops available to you…

Don’t miss it!
