WEMski, Livigno, Italian Alps
WEM recently asked itself the question ‘who takes care of the carers?’ with relation to medical professionals working in extremes be that in war zones, expeditions, remotely with little support, as an isolated or overwhelmed GP, in a busy stressed Emergency Department or on a paramedic crew.
We then asked ourselves the question ‘what can WEM do to help?’ and we came up with our answer; WEMski.
