Wild medicine

Earlier this month, David Holmes, clinical associate professor, led UB medical students and medical residents in the Department of Family Medicine on a wilderness medicine exercise in Akron Falls State Park. There was a picnic lunch and the requisite — and often hilarious — icebreaker competitions. Then Holmes gave a short lecture about wilderness medicine and students practiced the critical skills that are needed under emergency situations that can arise when people are far from medical facilities.
