Wilderness first-aid means caring more than band-aids. Learn what you need from a Helena doctor at Montana Wild on May 2.
St. Peter's Hospital's Dr. Anne Anglim will present "Beyond Band-Aids" in a discussion about common medical afflictions in the wilderness. Participants will learn how to be best prepared for heat, cold, frostbite, and more. Dr. Anglim is certified in wilderness and tropical medicine.
In addition, the program will include a demonstration from Capital Sports on SPOT–the Satellite Tracker & Messenger for wilderness emergencies.
The one-hour program will begin at 6:30 p.m. on May 2 at the Montana Wild Education Center. Montana Wild is located at 2668 Broadwater Ave., next to Spring Meadow Lake State Park off Highway 12 West. For more information call Montana Wild at 406-444-9944.
