The 2008 Appalachian Wilderness Medicine Conference is in Morgantown, WV Aug 8-10, hosted by WVU Department of Emergency Medicine and WV ACEP. There's lots of good information for climbers, including wilderness CPR, shoulder reduction and other orthopedic injuries, hypothermia, splinting, wound care, etc. We'll also have a search and rescue course on Friday, simulated rescue scenarios and other practical skills workshops at Cooper's Rock State Park on Saturday, and a choice of cave rescue with the Mountaineer Area Rescue Group, or river rescue on Sunday.
And there's good bluegrass music nearby at The Mountain Music series on Saturday night.
