Would You Know What To Do? Wilderness Med Course Equips People With First Aid Tools

UK Now

Perhaps you’re out on a day hike, or you’re driving along on a country road and a medical or traumatic emergency ensues; what can you reasonably do?  Well, a lot provided you have the proper training.  We’re talking Wilderness Medicine in this week’s edition of Dr. Greg Davis on Medicine.

During one of his walks across campus recently Dr. Greg witnessed a class outside the Seaton Center where students and their instructors were rendering first aid to one another.  Turns out he’d stumbled upon a Wilderness Medicine course taught by the National Outdoor Leadership School, so he chatted up instructor Greg Gaskin to learn more.

Dr. Greg Davis is a forensic pathologist with UK HealthCare. Every week, Davis speaks with local health providers, professionals, and researchers on Dr. Greg Davis on Medicine.
