EMRA MedWAR 2018

We were lucky to have world-renowned wilderness medicine experts aboard again this year and would like to recognize Drs. Caudell, Haston, and Irons for their devotion to resident education. Not only were they on course, but they spent many hours helping plan this event. The high quality of this event is owed to their contributions.

We truly appreciate all of the volunteers and proctors who joined us for the day. They spent long hours on the course and truly brought our scenarios to life.

This race would not have been possible without generous support from our sponsors at BTG, Gaumard and Hydralyte. Check their products out now that you’ve gotten to field test them!

Special thanks to our race Medical Director, Dr. Michael Lindsey, for being on the course and helping coordinate the day’s events.
