Extreme Medicine Conference ’13
Extreme Medicine Conference – featured speakers, workshops and extra sessions
Hosted by the Joseph B. Martin Conference Center at Harvard Medical School, Boston, USA
World Extreme Medicine Conference – Harvard Medical School 2013
28-31 October 2013 There are very few places and times that can boast such an eclectic and impressive line up of world authorities on disaster, humanitarian and wilderness medicine but this year Extreme Medicine Conference hosted at Harvard Medical School can make such a claim
Building on the success of the 2012 conference at the Royal Society of Medicine this years conference has a number of additional concurrent sessions and, as a result of the unfortunate happenings at 2013 Boston Marathon and with the full and complete backing of a number of local emergency service organisations, the conference will also feature a pre- conference Trauma Management Workshop for which conference attendees receive a substantial discount.
To stay that you don’t want to miss this conference would be an understatement!
