Wilderness Medicine & Advocacy Interest Group

Our group aims to increase awareness and opportunities in the subfield of Wilderness Medicine. Wilderness medicine includes understanding the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and prevention of illness and injuries in areas such as diving and hyperbaric, tropical and travel, and high-altitude environments, including improvisation and application in remote, wilderness settings. We also aim to empower members to advocate for access of the wilderness and decolonization of the wilderness through perspectives of community health. We aim to achieve these aims through talks, workshops and organized trips.
