  Lunch Talk - Dr. Paul Auerbach - April 21
Dr. Paul Auerbach is a founder and past-president of the Wilderness Medical Society and one of the original founders of this sub-specialty.  He is an ER physician by training, currently working at Stanford University, and specializes in hazardous marine animals and scuba diving safety.  He and his team at Stanford were one of the first teams to arrive in Haiti after the earthquake in 2010.

MedWAR - October 1
"Medical Wilderness Adventure Race" is an event in which simulated scenarios must be solved by teams of students.  These scenarios mimic what might be encountered in an austere environment with limited medical supplies.  Teams must think on their toes and work together to provide appropriate care.  Each station is timed and the team that had the most positive outcome at each station wins a prize.  This event will be a fun, educational, hands-on way for students to learn improvisation, as well as handy techniques to treat "in the wild".
