New Offsite Extreme Medicine Workshop in Las Vegas

Drs. Cheryl Lowry and Brian Pinkston will be providing a new and exciting workshop in Las Vegas at the end of the AsMA 90th Annual Scientific Meeting.

   This workshop will be held on Friday, May 10, 2019, and is titled “Introduction to Desert and Extreme Medicine.”
   The workshop will be conducted at the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area west of the Rio All Suite Hotel. Bus transportation and lunch will be provided as part of the $200.00 registration fee. Buses will depart the Rio All Suite Hotel at 7:00 AM to make the 30-40 minute trip to the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. The workshop will begin at 8:00 AM and is scheduled to end at 5:00 PM. Buses transportation back to the hotel is also included in the registration fee.
   This is intended to be an introductory workshop focused on medicine and expedition support in an extreme (desert) environment. Extreme environments are increasingly used by NASA and other researchers as analogs to long-duration missions. Additionally, adventure travel is becoming increasingly popular. AsMA members may either support or participate in research expeditions and adventure travel. Wilderness Medical Society (U.S.) and World Extreme Medicine (UK) are the primary providers of this sort of Continuing Medical Education (CME). Our members would benefit from an opportunity for adventure/expedition CME provided by AsMA, in joint providership with the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS), at this conference.
