My name is Mark Hannaford, founder of WEM.
I’d like to start by asking you an – arguably sensational – question:
How Many Extreme Medics Does It Take To Change The World?
Now stop for a moment.
Imagine your greatest career aspiration.
What is it?
Perhaps it involves…
…Supporting a mountaineering rescue team scaling Everest?
…Administering vital medical aid to remote communities in Africa?
…Performing complex life-saving surgery on child victims in war-torn countries?
Moving ahead in your career is important, whether it’s performing your job in earth’s harshest, most hostile and dangerous environments – all with limited or rudimentary equipment – or improving your skills and knowledge.
Regardless, they all have one factor in common…
Aspiration is the ‘seed’ of all your achievement, and you need to feed and nourish it, to help it grow strong.
That’s where we come in – we’re like the fertilizer.
Our world-renowned (and beyond – you’ll see) conference is an energetic hive of activity. You’ll discover practical training, motivating insights and once-a-year-only networking opportunities, all focused around expedition, wilderness and remote medicine.
All designed to inspire, educate and bridge the gaps across multiple disciplines.
We want you to be part of it too.
Be part of a 900-strong gathering of your peers, including around 100 renowned specialists in extreme medicine, and experience this year’s most ambitious, industry-diverse and world-changing Extreme Medicine Conference.
So, ‘How many extreme medics does it take to change the world?’
The answer: Just one more. Because there can never be enough.
I hope to see you there.
Yours in fellowship,
Prof. Mark Hannaford
WEM Founder & Honorary Associate Professor,
University of Exeter Extreme Medicine Program
